Artakioi was a Moesian tribe mentioned in the Roman period.[1] Cassius Dio (155–235) mentioned the tribe.[1] The ethnonym has been connected with the Roman-era toponyms Artiskos (a tributary of the Maritsa) and Artanes (a tributary of the Danube).[2] The tribe inhabited the region of the upper Tundzha river, a tributary of Maritsa.[3] It is believed that they spoke a Thracian language.[4]
