Eth. SEDU´SII a German tribe mentioned by Caesar (Caes. Gal. 1.51) as serving under Ariovistus; but as no particulars are stated about them, and as they are not spoken of by any subsequent writer, it is impossible to say to what part of Germany they belonged. Some regard them as the same as the Edusones mentioned by Tacitus (Germ. 40), and others identify them with the Phundusi whom Ptolemy (2.11.12) places in the Cimbrian Chersonesus; but both conjectures are mere fancies, based on nothing but a faint resemblance of names.
