SENOMANI

SENOMANI
Gallice Les Manccaux, prius Lemani vocati a Lemano principe, qui Lemanum civitatem de suo nomine condidit, seu potius restituit, ac restauravit. Antea enim istud oppid. Sarrhon, Samothae nepos condiderat, quod Sarrham, vel Sartham nominavetat: ist udque postea Druidae bellô in Lemanos motô diripuerant, ac solo funditus aequaverant. Lapsu vero temporis Lemani et Senones bellô inter se concitati, multisque proeliis utrinque commissis pacem inierunt, ac foedere percussô, ex utraque gente unicam fecerunt: eâ tamen conditione, ut nomine compositô vocarentur; cuius nominis 2, priores syllabae Senones, 2. posteriores Lemanos significarent, Lloyd.
