The Tyrageti, Tyragetae, or Tyrangitae ( _gr. polytonic|Τυραγγεῖται, polytonic|τυραγγέται, or polytonic|Τυρεγέται,
Strabovii.; Ptol. iii. 5. § 25), literally, the Getae of the Tyras, were a sub-tribe of the Getae Thracians, situated on the river Tyras (modern day Dniesterin Ukraine). They were regarded as an immigrant tribe of European Sarmatiadwelling E. of the river Tyras, near the Harpiiand Tagri, and, according to Ptolemy, the northern neighbours of Lower Moesia. Pliny (v. 12. s. 26) calls them, with more correct orthography, Tyragetae, and represents them as dwelling on a large island in the Tyras.
