ARTEGA, a tribe of African " Arabs," said to be descendants of a sheik of that name who came from Hadramut in pre-Islamic days, settling near Tokar. The name is said to be " patrician," and the Artega may be regarded as the most ancient stock in the Suakin district. They are now an inferior mixed race. They were all followers of the mandi and khalifa in the Sudan wars (1883-1898). See Anglo-EgyptianSudan,edited byCountGleichen (London, 1905).
