SABIS (Sambre), a river of Belgica, which joins the Mosa (Maas) at Charleroi. Caesar (B.C. 57) marched against the Nervii and their confederates from the south, and he found the enemy posted on the north side of the Sabis (B. G. 2.16). In this battle the Belgae were defeated with great slaughter. [NERVII]
