Marsigni
This LIST OF GERMANIC TRIBES is a list of tribes, tribal groups and other connections and alliances of ethnic groups and tribes that were considered Germanic in ancient times. These reports begin in the 2nd century BC and extend into late antiquity . Beginning with the states of the Early Middle Ages , the period in which tribes or tribal kingship had a historical impact ends, with the exception of northern Europe, where the Vendel Period from 550 AD to 800 AD and the subsequent Viking Age until 1050 AD are still seen in the Germanic context. The associations and localisations of the numerous peoples and groups in ancient sources are subject to uncertainty and speculation, and classifications of ethnicity with a common culture or a temporary alliance of heterogeneous groups are disputed

Elbe Germanic Peoples
The ELBE GERMANII (German : Elbgermanen) or ELBE GERMANIC PEOPLES were Germanic tribes whose settlement area, based on archaeological finds, lay either side of the Elbe estuary on both sides of the river and which extended as far as Bohemia and Moravia , clearly the result of a migration up the Elbe river from the northwest in advance of the main Migration Period until the individual groups ran into the Roman Danube Limes around 200 AD. The Elbe Germanii included the tribes of the Semnones , Hermunduri , Quadi , Marcomanni and the Lombards . Historically they are possibly the same as the Irminones or Herminones mentioned by classical authors such as Tacitus , Pliny the Elder and Pomponius Mela . The most notable of these were the Suebic tribes. All or most of the modern languages thought to derive from the languages of these historical peoples are in the High German group of the West Germanic language family

Aelvaeones
The HELVECONAE, or HELVAEONAE, or HELVECONES, or AELVAEONES, or AILOUAIONES were a Germanic tribe mentioned by Roman authors. They are possibly connected to the Hilleviones of Naturalis Historia by Pliny the Elder . The Helveconae as such (manuscript variant Helvaeonae) are one of the tribal states of the Lugii mentioned by Tacitus in Germania . The Lugii were located in the Silesia area (today Poland ). Their ethnicity is speculative. Subsequent authors, such as Johann Jacob Hofmann , 1635-1706, identified the people of Tacitus with a people of Ptolemy , the Ailouaiones in Greek, which has been Latinized to Aelvaeones. Perhaps the scholars innovated Helvecones, which is not attested in classical times

minores (located at the delta of the Yssel) and the Bructerii maiores that were living south of them at the end of the Ems.
