The Lugii, Lugi, Lygii, Ligii, Lugiones, Lygians, Ligians, Lugians, or Lougoi were a tribe of Indo-European origin, but of disputed ethnic background: Celtic, Germanic, Slavonic or mixed. They lived in ca. 400 BC–300 AD in Central Europe, north of the Sudetes mountains in the basin of upper Odra and Vistula rivers, covering most of modern south and middle Poland (regions of Silesia, Greater Poland, Mazovia and Little Poland). Most of archaeologists identify the Lugians with the Przeworsk culture. The source of their power was control of the most important middle part of the Amber Road from Sambia at the Baltic Sea to the provinces of Roman Empire: Pannonia, Noricum and Raetia.

Tribal division

According to Tacitus (Germania 43:3) the Lugii were divided into many tribes ('civitates'), of which he mentions the five most powerful: Harii, Helveconae, Manimi, Helisii and Naharvali. Claudius Ptolemeus mentions the Lugi Omani, the Lugi Diduni and the Lugi Buri located on or near the upper Vistula in Germania Magna in what is now south Poland (Book 2, Chapter 10, 4th map of Europe). The forms of the names imply that the Lugii of that time were divided into the Omani, the Diduni and the Buri. In Tacitus the Buri are a separate tribe, so it's possible that they entered the Lugian federation a bit later. Gaius Cornelius Tacitus Publius (or Gaius) Cornelius Tacitus (c. ...

According to Strabo the Lugians were 'a great people' and—together with other peoples like Semnones and the otherwise unknown Zumi, Butones, Mugilones and Sibini—were part of a federation subjected to the rule of Marbod, ruler of the Marcomanni with their centre in modern Bohemia 9 BC19 AD. The next mention of Lugii are the times of the Roman emperor Claudius (4154). According to the Tacitus's Annales, in 50 'a great multitude' of Lugians allied with Romans took part in the fall of the Wannius state of Quadi, located in present MoraviaSlovakia.

The next information about the Lugians comes from Cassius Dio's work Roman History, in which he mentions events of 9192 during the reign of emperor Domitian. The Lugii allied themselves with the Romans and asked them for help against their western neighbours, the Germanic Suebi tribe. Domitian sent 100 horsemen to support the Lugians. It is not known if these horsemen really arrived at their destination; if they did, it would be the first recorded presence of Roman soldiers on what is now Polish soil.

The later history of the Lugians is uncertain, but some historians assume that the Lugians can be indentified with the 'Longiones' tribe mentioned in Zosimus's New History (Historia Nova), as being defeated by the Emperor Probus in year 279 in the province of Raetia near the Lygis river (usually identified with Lech river in modern Austria and Bavaria).

Althoght archeology is no longer equated with ethnicity some belive: The first Celts entered what is now south Poland ca. 400 BC from Bohemia and Moravia and settled along the Viadua river in Upper Silesia near Głubczyce and in Lower Silesia between Wrocław, Legnica and the Mount Ślęża, which was their holy centre[citation needed]. T There are still some ancient Celtic-type stone sculptures preserved to this day in the Mt. Ślęża vicinity. Another group of Celts from Moravia settled ca. 200 BC in the area of Kraków and another small group in Kuyavia.

Ethnic background disputed

Some recent authors would like to connect the Lugii with Slavs, The word Lugi is by sound equal to Ludzie what mean the people in today inhabitant of the land of the antique Lugi.

Ancient writers included them to Germans, but not Teutons. Others claim that they were a compound tribe, or confederation of tribes of different ethnicity. Most scholars though agree that it could perhaps be a mixture between the two groups. This entry is about the Teutonic people, not to be confused with the Teutonic Knights. ...

Other point that Germans is now equaled with Teutons who exclusively asimilated the exonym Germans and the ancient Germans did not mean Teutons exclusively but rather Teutons are contrasted to antique or even mediveal Germans. The turning point in Teutons overtaking the exonym Germans was, in 19 century, the 'edition' of Getica by Theodore Mommsen. The Origin and Deeds of the Goths (Latin: De origine actibusque Getarum), commonly referred to as Getica, was written by Jordanes, probably in Constantinople, and was published in AD 551. ... Theodor Mommsen Theodor Mommsen Christian Matthias Theodor Mommsen (30 November 1817 - 1 November 1903) was a German classical scholar and historian, generally regarded as the greatest classicist of the 19th century. ...

There is a possibility that the Lusatian Sorbs, known in their own language and in Polish as the Łużyczanie,adjective łużycki, are among their descendants. The term Łużyczanie/łużycki could very well have developed from Lugii. Other derivetive names from the same region recorded in historical sources: (the latin/italin 'g' sound like 'dz' in other systems) The Sorbs are a Slavic minority indigenous to the region known as Lusatia in the current German states of Saxony and Brandenburg (in former GDR territory). ...
