One of the most powerful people in Gallia Belgica, inhabited the country through which the Axona flowed, and were bounded on the south by the Nervii, on the southeast by the Veromandui, on the east by the Suessiones and Bellovaci, and on the west by the Nervii. They formed an alliance with Caesar, when the rest of the Belgae made war against him, B.C. 57. Their chief town was Durocortorum, afterwards called Remi (Rheims) (Ptol.ii. 9, 12).
