or CO'LICHAS (Κόλχας, Κολίχας), a petty prince of Spain, who ruled over twentyeight cities, and furnished supplies of troops to Scipio against Mago and Hasdrubal in B. C. 206. (Pol. 11.20; Liv. 28.13.) In reward for his services, the Romans increased his dominions (Pol. 21.9); but in B. C. 197 he revolted, and drew away seventeen towns from their allegiance to Rome. The rebellion spread widely through Spain, but was eventually suppressed by M. Porcius Cato, Q. Minucius Thermus, and various other commanders, in B. C. 195. (Liv. 33.21, 26, 44, 34.8-21.)
