Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Ambarri were a Gallic people, whom Julius Caesar (B. G. i. 11) calls close allies and kinsmen of the Aedui. If the reading Aedui Ambarri in the passage referred to is correct, the Ambarri were Aedui. They are not mentioned among the clientes of the Aedui. (B. G. vii. 75.) They occupied a tract in the valley of the Rh ne, probably in the angle between the Sa ne and the Rh ne; and their neighbors on the east were the Allobroges. They are mentioned by Livy (v. 34) with the Aedui among those Galli who were said to have crossed the Alps into Italy in the time of Tarquinius Priscus. Several communes in today's Ain department of France derive their name from them, including: Amb rieu-en-Bugey, Amb rieux-en-Dombes, Ambutrix and Ambronay.show more
