Teia (d. 552 or 553), also known as Teja, Theia, Thila, Thela, Teias, was the last
Ostrogothic king in Italy.
Apparently a military officer serving under
Totila, Teia was chosen as successor after Totila was slain in the Battle of Taginae(also known as the "Battle of Busta Gallorum".) in July 552. On his way fleeing to southern Italy, he gathered support from prominent figures within Totila's armies including Scipuar, Gundulf(Indulf), Gibaland Ragnaristo make his last standagainst the Byzantine eunuch general Narsesat the Battle of Mons Lactarius, south of present-day Naples, near Nuceria Alfaterna, in October 552. The Ostrogothic army was defeated once again. Teia was slain, his brother Aligern surrendered. Scipuar and Gibal were likely also killed. Gundulf and Ragnaris escaped from the field; the latter was mortally wounded after a failed assassination by an agent of Narses.
With that defeat, organized Ostrogothic resistance ended. Although the last attested Gothic noble
Widinrevolted in northern Italy in 550s and was captured in 561 or 562, the Ostrogoths would fade into obscurity.
