DULGIBINI

Eth. DULGIBINI (Eth. Δουλγούμνιοι), a German tribe which, according to Tacitus (Germ. 34.) inhabited the country south or south-west of the Angrivarii, whereas according to Ptolemy (2.11.17) they dwelt further east on the right bank of the Weser. This discrepancy is no doubt the consequence of the migrations among the Germans; and both statements may be correct in regard to the different periods described by the two authorities.
