VASATES

Eth. VASATES It is probable that the name Vasarii in Ptolemy (2.7.15) should be Vasatii, as D'Anville says, and so it is printed in some Greek texts. But Ptolemy makes them border on the Gabali and places them farther north than Bordeaux, though he names their chief town Cossium. The Vocates are enumerated by Caesar (Caes. Gal. 3.23, 27) among the Aquitanian peoples who submitted to P. Crassus in B.C. 56. [COSSIO or COSSIUM.]
