Region (Amm. Marc. 17,8,3) in the modern provinces of Noord-Brabant, Antwerpen and Limburg, in the Middle Ages the earldom of Teisterbant. The population (Texuandri: Plin. HN 4,106; ILS 2556; CIL III, 6239; 14214) consisted of different groups, among them Germanic peoples which gathered in the former settlement area of the Eburones. The Salii , who settled in T. in Late Antiquity, were defeated in AD 358 by Iulianus , but may have remained in the country and made T. the starting point for their expansion in the 4th and 5th cents.
