Eth. GARITES a people of Aquitania (Caes. Gal. 3.27), who submitted to P. Crassus, B. C 56. They are mentioned by Caesar between the Elusates and Ausci, and the position of both of these peoples is known within certain limits. [ELUSATES, AUSCI.] Some writers would connect the name Garites with the name Gers, a branch of the Garonne. But the reading Garites is not certain in Caesar's text. Schneider (ed. Caes. Bell. Gall.) has taken the reading Gates.
