Triteuta (Greek: Τριτεύτα; fl. 230–219 BC) was the first wife of Agron, the king of the Ardiaei (r. 250–231 BC), with whom she had a son named Pinnes. Some time before his death (231/230 BC), Agron divorced Triteuta and married Teuta. Their son, crown prince Pinnes, was placed under guardianship of step-mother Teuta (the Queen regent) until after the First Illyrian War (228 BC). According to Dio, Demetrius of Pharos married Triteuta and became regent for Pinnes, after the war, thus becoming the most powerful of the Illyrian rulers in the 220s BC. With Demetrius removed from the throne in 219 BC it is likely that Triteuta was no longer queen.
