A people in Gallia Belgica, bounded on the south by the Helvetii, on the west by the Sequani, on the north by the Tribocci, and on the east by the Rhine. They must have been a people of considerable importance, as 23,000 of them are said to have emigrated with the Helvetii in B.C. 58, and they possessed several towns, of which the most important were Augusta (August) and Basilia (Basel or Bâle).
