Celegeri were a Celtic[1] tribe, together with the Dindari a branch of the Scordisci that migrated to Illyria after the Gallic invasion of the Balkans in 279 BC. They inhabited Moesia Superior[2] (modern Central Serbia), and are registered by Pliny as living between the Dardanoi and the Triballi. They appear in north-westernmost Thrace in the 1st century BC.[3] They were replaced by the Romanized Thracio-Celtic Tricornenses.[4]

The Municipium Celegerorum is present Ivanjica, Serbia.
