Tiu, also Teyew etc., was a ancient Egyptian Pharaoh who ruled in the Nile Delta.[1] He ruled in the Predynastic period in ancient Egyptian history. The Predynastic period began around 10,200 BC, and ended between 4,500 and 2,000 BC.[1]

Tiu is mentioned in the Palermo Stone inscriptions, along with a small number of kings of Lower Egypt.[2] Nothing else is known of his life or what he did while he was Pharaoh.
