Dacian tribes.

The Clariae were an ancient people living between the Haemus Mountains and the Danube river. They are known from only one passage from Pliny the Elder's Naturalis Historia, where he mentions them alongside the Aedi and Scaugdae as the neighbours of the Getae.[1]

According to the scholar Georgi Mihailov, the Aedi were a Getic tribe.[2]
