    Has there been any genetic study on the Galatians (Celts that settled in Asia Minor)?

    A band of Celts under the leadership of Leotarios and Leonorrios circa 278 BCE invaded through Thrace and settled in Central Anatolia in what became Galatia. The main tribes were they Testosages, the Trocmii and the Tolistobogii. ​I wonder if their genetic signal still persist or has died out.
