Byzeres (Georgian: ბიძერები) were an ancient Georgian tribe, inhabiting southwest Georgia. They are first mentioned in the 13th-9th centuries BC, in Urartean sources as uiterukhi or uitirukhi. Sardur II conquered their lands, appointed a deputy and made it a province. According to the Ancient Greek souces, byzeres inhabited near the southeast coast of the Black Sea, south of the Ch'orokhi River and partly the Pontic Mountains as well. The name of the historical region Odzrkhe is derived from the name of this tribe - Vidzerukh/Viterukh/Odzr(a)khe/Odzrkhe.
