Dacian tribes.

The Terizi (Ancient Greek: Τέριζοι) were a Thracian Getic tribe. The Terizi lived on the Tirizian promontory (now known as Cape Kaliakra).[1]

In 313 BCE, the Terizi were defeated by the Hellenistic strategos of Thrace, Lysimachus, who established a treasury on the coast of the Black Sea, in their territory.[2]

However, a text of Hellanicus associates the Crobyzi as well the Terizi (from the Tirizian promontory) with the Getae, who ‘immortalize’ that is ‘render immortal’ by ritual.
