Eth. DESUVIATES a people of Gallia Narbonensis, known only from a few words of Pliny (3.4), who says, “regio Anatiliorum, et intus Desuviatium Cavarumque.” The Anatilii are supposed to have been at the mouth of the Rhone, and probably they occupied part at least of the isle of Camargue. The position of the Cavares, north of the Durance [CAVARES], is known; and there remains no place for the Desuviates except the small district south of the Durance, between the Durance and the Rhone. If this is so, the Desuviates were surrounded on the, east and south by the Salyes.
