Eth. AMBARRI a Gallic people, whom Caesar (Caes. Gal. 1.11) calls close allies and kinsmen of the Aedui. If the reading “Aedui Ambarri” in the passage referred to is correct, the Ambarri were Aedui. They are not mentioned among the “clientes” of the Aedui. (B. G. 7.75.) They occupied a tract in the valley of the Rhone, probably in the angle between the Saône and the Phone; and their neighbours on the E. were the Allobroges. They are mentioned by Livy (5.34) with the Aedui among those Galli who were said to have crossed the Alps into Italy in the time of Tarquinius Priscus.
