“…called the “Gallia” of the East, Roman writers calling its inhabitants Galli. They were of Gauls and Greeks, and hence were called Gallo-Graeci, and the country Gallo-Graecia. The Galatians were in their origin a part of that great Celtic migration which invaded Macedonia about B.C. 280. They were great warriors, and hired themselves out as mercenary soldiers, sometimes simultaneously fighting on both sides of great battles during their time.”
