The tribe is mentioned in early Ruthenian manuscripts, 863 being the earliest time reference, 944 being the last. In the beginning of 10th century, the tribe became part of the Kievan Rus. Since the mid-10th century, Tivertsi are frequently invaded by neighbouring Pechenegs and Cumans, as a result of which the tribe assimilates among other East Slavic tribes. In 12th and 13th centuries, the lands of Tivertsi were part of kingdom of Galicia and later the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. These lands were later populated by Wallachians from Transylvania, and the remaining Tivertsi gradually assimilated among them.

Odessa (1636 words)
These towns disappeared in the 3d and 4th centuries, leaving nothing but heaps of runs; and for ten centuries thenceforward no settlements in these tracts are mentioned.
All that is known is that in the 6th century the space between the mouths of the Dnieper and the Dniester was occupied by the Antes, and in the 9th century by the Tivertsy, both of Slavonian origin.
In the 14th century this region belonged to the Lithuanians, and in 1396 Olgerd defeated in battle three Tatar chiefs, one of whom, Bek-Haji, had recently founded, at the place now occupied by Odessa, a fort which received his name.
