or Teutŏni. A powerful people in Germany, who invaded Gaul and the Roman dominions along with the Cimbri, at the latter end of the second century B.C. The name Teutones is not a collective name of the whole people of Germany, as some writers have supposed, but only of one particular tribe, who probably dwelt on the coast of the Baltic, near the Cimbri. See Cimbri; Germania.
