Charaton (Olympiodorus of Thebes: Χαράτων), also known as Aksungur or Aksuvar, was said to be the first of the kings of the Huns from c. 410–422. It is believed that Charaton ruled mostly the eastern part of the Hunnic Empire.
In 412, Charaton received the Byzantine ambassador Olympiodorus. Olympiodorus travelled to Charaton’s kingdom by sea, but does not record whether the sea in question was the Black or Adriatic. The former would put Charaton’s Huns somewhere on the Pontic steppe, while the latter would put them on the Pannonian plain.
