TAMARICI

Eth. TAMARICI a Gallaecian tribe on the river Tamaris in Hispania Tarraconensis. (Plin. Nat. 4.20. s. 34; Mela, 3.1.) According to Pliny (30.2. s. 18) there were certain noted springs in their territory, which are undoubtedly the same described by Florez (Cantabria, p. 4) near the hermitage of S. Juan de fuentas divinas, 12 Spanish miles E. of Leon, and 5 N. of Saldanna. (Cf. Ukert, ii. pt. i. p. 302, note 80.)
