Zikirti or Zikirtu, (also: Zikirta, Zikurti, Zekertu) was an ancient kingdom (750-521 BC), in northern Zagros, which comprised the easternmost part of Greater Mannae. Geographically it corresponds with the modern counties of Takab and Shahindej in northwestern Iran.[citation needed]

The people of Zikirti are possibly to be identified with ancient Iranian Sagartians, mentioned by Herodotus.[1]
