or Chatti. One of the most important nations of Germany, bounded by the Visurgis (Weser) on the east, the Agri Decumates on the south, and the Rhine on the west, in the modern Hesse and the adjacent countries. They were a branch of the Hermiones, and are first mentioned by Caesar under the erroneous name of Suevi. They were never completely subjugated by the Romans; and their power was greatly augmented on the decline of the Cherusci. Their capital was Mattium (Maden).
