Powerful tribe in Britannia north of the lower Thames, who most likely had links with the Gallic Catualauni. Their most influential rulers were Tasciovanus and his son Cunobellinus . Following the conquest of Britannia by Claudius (Cass. Dio 60,20,2), the C. were organized as a civitas with Verulamium as its centre (Tac. Ann. 14,33).
