The Volcae Arecomici in the south of France and the Tectosages of Galatia were in all probability offshoots of this people.
VOLCAE, a Celtic people in the province of Gallia Narbonensis, who occupied the district between the Garumna (Garonne), Cerbenna mons (CÃ©vennes), and the Rhodanus (or even farther to the east in earlier times), corresponding roughly to the old province of Languedoc. They were divided into two tribes, the Arecomici on the east and the Tectosages (whose territory included that of the Tolosates) on the west, separated by the river Arauris (HÃ©rault) or a line between the Arauris and Orbis (Orbe).
The chief town of the Tectosages was Tolosa (Toulouse); of the Arecomici, Nemausus (NÃ®mes); the capital of the province and residence of the governor was Narbo Martius (Narbonne).
