On returning to his forces in Gaul,1 Caesar found a considerable war in the country, since two great German nations had just crossed the Rhine to possess the land, one called the Usipes,2 the other the Tenteritae.

1 In 55 B.C. Plutarch passes over Caesar's campaign of 56 B.C. in Gaul, following the conference at Luca. Caesar describes it in B. G. iii.

2 Caesar calls them Usipetes and Tencteri ( B. G iv. 1).
