Eth. ELYCO´CI (Eth. Έλύκωκοι), a people of Gallia Narbonensis, mentioned only by Ptolemy (2.10), who makes Alba Augusta their capital. D'Anville, Walckenaer, and others, suppose that Ptolemy's Elycoci is a corruption of Helvii; and it may be some argument in favour of this supposition that both people had a capital Alba. [ALBA HELVIORUM.] But, on the other hand, Ptolemy places the Elycoci on the east side of the Rhone, and the Helvii are on the west side.
