a small people of Hispania Tarraconensis, who revolted from the Romans in the war about Emporiae, B.C. 195. (Liv. 34.16
.) They seem to have been neighbours of the Hergetes, in the mountains of Catalonia,
There can be no doubt that the place, afterwards mentioned by Livy (100.21
) as the strong-hold of the rebels, Bergium
or Vergium castrum,
was one of the seven fortresses of the Bergistani, mentioned by him in the former passage, and that from which they took their name.
It is probably Berga.
