Caucasian Iberians

Caucasian Iberians (Georgian: იბერები) was a Greco-Roman designation for ancient Georgians or Kartvelians who inhabited the east and southeast of the Transcaucasus region in prehistoric and historic times. Ancient Iberians are identified as modern eastern Georgians who have originated from the early Georgian state of Caucasian Iberia. In southwest, Iberians extended into Anatolia, inhabiting interior lands beside Colchians, who lived along the littoral area.

Caucasian Iberians should not be confused with the ancient inhabitants of the Roman Hispania, the Iberians of the Iberian Peninsula, or today's Spanish and Portuguese who are also referred to as Iberians.
