The Batavii (or Batavi, Batavians) were a Germanic tribe, originally part of the Chatti, reported by Tacitus to have lived around the Rhine delta, in the area which is currently the Netherlands, "an uninhabited district on the extremity of the coast of Gaul, and also of a neighbouring island, surrounded by the ocean in front, and by the river Rhine in the rear and on either side" (Tacitus, Histories iv). This led to the Latin name of Batavia for the area. The same name is used for several military units, originally raised among the Batavii. ...more on Wikipedia about "Batavii"

The Belgae were a group of nations or tribes living in north-eastern Gaul, on the west bank of the Rhine, in the 1st century BC, and later also attested in Britain. Their name survives in modern Belgium. The name Belgae may come from the Proto-Celtic *belo which means "bright"and is allied to English word "bale" (as in "bale-fire"), the Anglo-Saxon "bael", and the Lithuanian "baltas", meaning "white" or "shining" (from which the Baltic takes its name) (See Beltane). Thus the Gaulish god-names " Belenos" (*Bright one) and " Belisama" (probably the same divinity, originally from *belo-nos = our shining one) may also come from the same source. ...more on Wikipedia about "Belgae"

The Buri first appear in history as a Germanic tribe mentioned in the Germania of Tacitus, where they "close the back" of the Marcomanni and Quadi of Bohemia and Moravia. It is said that their speech and customs were like those of the Suebi. Such a statement implies that the Buri had recently come from Suebia, as the Germanics in Bohemia and Moravia were newcomers, having driven out the Celtic Boii and taken their lands. In Tacitus, the Buri are not linked to the Lugii. ...more on Wikipedia about "Buri (Germanic tribe)"

Cantabri was an ancient tribe which inhabited the north coast of Hispania near Santander and Bilbao and the mountains behind a district hence known as Cantabria (all in modern Spain). Savage and untameable mountaineers, they long defied the Roman arms and made themselves a name for wild freedom. They were first attacked by the Romans about 150 BC. They were not subdued till Agrippa and Augustus had carried out a series of campaigns known as the Cantabrian Wars ( 29- 19 BC) which ended in their partial annihilation. Thenceforward their land was part of the province Hispania Tarraconensis with some measure of local self-government. They became slowly Romanized, but developed little town life and are rarely mentioned in history. They provided recruits for the Roman auxilia, like their neighbors the Astures, and their land contained lead mines, of which, however, little is known. ...more on Wikipedia about "Cantabri"
