Khaldi

The Khaldi were a Bronze Age people inhabiting the south-eastern shore of the Black Sea (now part of Turkey). They were related in proximity and probably also in language to the Hattians, an ancient people of Asia Minor. Another ancient ethnic group possibly associated with the Khaldi are the "Kardu".

The Khaldi, and neighboring tribes Khalib/"Chalybes" to the west, "Mossynoikoi", and Tubal/Tabal/"Tibarenoi", are counted among the first ironsmith nations by classical authors.

The main sources for the history of the Khaldi are certain well-known works by Homer, Strabo, and Xenophon.

As late as in Roman times, the "Chaldaei" (i.e. Khaldi, homonymous but unrelated to the Semitic Chaldeans) are mentionedFact|date=February 2007 as a tribe immediately neighboring the "Chalybes" in Pontic Cappadocia, or the "Pontus Cappadocicus" section of the Roman province of Pontus.
