[German version]

Leader of the Cherusci, father of Arminius, also recorded as Sigimerus. (Vell. Pat. 2,118,2). It is unclear whether the S. who is mentioned by Cassius Dio (56,19,2) as a co-conspirator of Arminius is identical with this S. or with the identically named brother of Segestes; this S., with his son Sesithacus, capitulated to the Romans in AD 15 (Tac. Ann. 1,71,1; Str. 7,1,4). The 'conspirator' may even be a third S. [1. 142]
