Divico was a Gallic king and the leader of the Helvetian tribe of the Tigurini. During the Cimbrian War, in which the Cimbri and Teutons invaded the Roman Republic, he led the Tigurini across the Rhine to invade Gaul in 109 BC towards the Roman region of Province. He defeated a Roman army and killed its leaders Lucius Cassius Longinus (consul 107 BC) and Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus during the Battle of Burdigala in 107 BC. He may also have been the leader of the Helvetii against Julius Caesar at the Battle of Bibracte in 58 BC.
