List of ancient tribes in Thrace

This is a list of ancient tribes in Thrace and Dacia (Ancient Greek: Θρᾴκη; Δακία) including possibly or partly Thracian or Dacian tribes, and non-Thracian or non-Dacian tribes that inhabited the lands known as Thrace and Dacia. A great number of Ancient Greek tribes lived in these regions as well, albeit in the Greek colonies.


Tribes

Thracian

It must be noted that certain tribes and subdivisions of tribes were named differently by ancient writers but modern research points out that these were in fact the same tribe.[1] The name Thracians itself seems to be a Greek exonym and we have no way of knowing what the Thracians called themselves.[2] Also certain tribes mentioned by Homer are not indeed historical.
