TYRANGI´TAE

TYRANGI´TAE (Τυραγγεῖται, τυραγγέται, or Τυρεγέται, Strab. vii. p.289, &c.; Ptol. 3.5.25), literally, the Getae of the Tyras, an immigrant tribe of European Sarmatia dwelling E. of the river Tyras, near the Harpii and Tagri, and, according to Ptolemy, the northern neighbours of Lower Moesia. Pliny (5.12. s. 26) calls them, with more correct orthography, Tyragetae, and represents them as dwelling on a large island in the Tyras.
