MARCOMANNI (i.e. men of the mark, or border), the name of a Suevic tribe. With kindred peoples they were often in conflict with the Roman Empire, and gave their name to the Marcomannic War, a struggle waged by the emperor Marcus Aurelius against them and the Quadi. The Marcomanni disappeared from history during the 4th century, being probably merged in the Baiouarii, the later Bavarians. See Sums'; also F. M. Wittmann, Die dlteste Geschichte der Markomannen (Munich, 1855), and E. Devrient, " Hermunduren and Markomannen " in Neues Jahrb. f. das klassische Altertum (1901), 51.
