Suction drains (Region Rennes)

(Second - first century BC)

The suction drains occupied the eastern part of Brittany, corresponding to the current department of Ille-et-Vilaine. They had for neighbors Coriosolites the Namnètes the Unelles and Aulerci. They have owned an outlet to the sea at the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel. Their surname is found in the towns of Redon and Rennes (Condate). They were part of a coalition of 57 BC, who stole the fight, and were submitted by Crassus. The following year, Roman emissaries were captured which forced Caesar to intervene in Armorica to submit tribes revolted, before moving to Britain the following year, to punish the tribes across the Channel who brought their Support Armoricans. In 52 BC, at the request of Vercingetorix, they provided a quota for the relief army, the latter, according to Caesar, included twenty thousand men for all Armoricans. Caesar (Bg. II, 34, VII, 75).
