SIATUTANDA (Σατούτανδα), is mentioned by Ptolemy (2.11.27) as a town of Germany; but had probably no existence at all, the geographer imagining that in the words of Tacitus (Tac. Ann. 4.73), “ad sua tutanda digressis rebellious” the name of some town was contained. Notwithstanding this evident origin of the name, some modern geographers still persist in assuming a town Siatutanda. [L.S.)
