Celtic (?) name of a leader of the Suebi who commanded a large tribal army together with his brother Nasua in 58 BC [1. 438-440]. The attempt to cross the Middle Rhine and to aid Ariovistus against Caesar failed because Ariovist was defeated in Alsace and subsequently fled across the Rhine (Caes. B Gall. 1,37,3; 1,54,1).
