The Elisyces (Greek: Ἐλισύκοι-ων, Latin: Elesyces, French: Élisyques) were a tribe that occupied the region of Narbonne and northern Roussillon in ancient times. According to various ancient sources, they could be of either Iberian or Ligurian origin, or represent their mixture.
The Elisyces seem to have been in contact with the peoples of the Mediterranean traders (Phoenicians, Greek) which they provided agricultural products and mineral resources from their territories or outlying areas and were routed to their commercial spaces (Pech Maho).
