2. A deity among the Naharvali, an ancient German tribe. (Tacit. Germ. 43.) Grimm (Deutsche Mythol. p. 39) considers Alcis in the passage of Tacitus to be the genitive of Alx, which, according to him, signifies a sacred grove, and is connected with the Greek ἄλσος. Another Alcis occurs in Apollodorus, 2.1.5.
