A German people, who originally dwelt on the right bank of the Rhine, but were transported across the river by Agrippa, in B.C. 37, at their own request, because they wished to escape the hostilities of the Suevi (B. G. iv. 3, 18; Tac. Ann. xii. 27; Suet. Aug. 21). They took the name of Agrippenses, from their town Colonia Agrippina (Cologne).
