Eth. BATI´NI (Βατεινοί), a German tribe, which Ptolemy (2.11.20) places between Mount Sudeta and Asciburgius. Some believe the Batini to have been the same as the Butones, who, together with other tribes, were subdued by Maroboduus. (Strab. vii. p.290, where however Cramer reads Γούτωνες) Modern writers connect the names Budissin or Budia with the ancient Butini. (See Kruse, Budorgis, p. 113.)
