Eth. SEGNI a German tribe in Belgium, mentioned by Caesar (Caes. Gal. 6.32) with the Condrusi, and placed between the Eburones and the Treviri. In B. G. 2.4 Caesar speaks of the Condrusi, Eburones, Caeraesi, and Paemani, “qui uno nomine Germani appellantur;” but he does not name the Segni in that passage. There is still a place named Sinei or Signei near Condroz, on the borders of Namur; and this may indicate the position of the Segni.
