Nababes
(81 words)

[German version]

Berber tribe in Mauretania Caesariensis. According to Plin HN 5,21, the river (flumen) Usar (modern Oued Isser?) separated the gens of the N. from the gens of the Macurebi. In Tab. Peut. 2,2-4, the N. are placed to the south of the Mons Ferratus, the Djurdjura mountain range (Kabylei). They probably belonged to the confederacy of the Quinquegentiani.
