Eth. CAMBOLECTRI Pliny (3.5) mentions Cambolectri Atlantici in Gallia Narbonensis, but it is difficult to say where he supposes them to be. He also, under the Aquitanic nations (4.19), mentions “Cambolectri Agesinates Pictonibus juncti,” as Harduin has it; but “Cambolectri” ought to be separated from Agesinates, as Walckenaer affirms, and he places them about Cambo, in the arrondissement of Bayonne, in the department of Basses Pyrénées. It appears from Pliny mentioning these peoples and distinguishing them, that they are two genuine names. It has been conjectured that the name Cambonum [CAMBONUM] may be geographically connected with the Cambolectri.
