A powerful Celtic people in Gallia Belgica, inhabiting the country since called Franche Comté and Burgundy. In the later division of the provinces of the Empire the country of the Sequani formed a special province under the name of Maxima Sequanorum. They derived their name from the river Sequana, which had its source in the northwestern frontiers of their territory. Their chief town was Vesontio (Besançon) (B. G. i. 1, 3, 10-12; Lucan, i. 425).
