Acichorius (Gr. Ακιχώριος) was one of the leaders of the Gauls, who invaded Thrace and Macedonia in 280 BC.[1] He and Brennus commanded the division that marched into Paionia. In the following year, 279 BC, he accompanied Brennus in his invasion of Greece.[2] Some writers suppose that Brennus and Acichorius are the same persons, the former being only a title and the latter the real name.[3]
