BACUA´TAE (Βακουᾶται), a people of Mauretania Tingitana, about the neighbourhood of Fez. (Ptol. 4.1.10.) There is an extant Latin inscription to the memory of a youth, son of Aurelius Canartha, chief of the tribes of the Baquates (principis Gentiumn Baquatiua, Orelli, No. 525.) In the Chronicon Paschale (vol. i. pp. 46, 57) the name occurs in the form of Μακουακοί. In the same list as the Bacuatae, but at the extreme S., Ptolemy places the Οὐακαυᾶται, probably only another form of the name.
