Ebek Tarezıg, known simply as Ebek, was a 15th Century Algazi scholar. Ebek's works are considered to be a key contribution to the development of the field of archeology and a forerunner of modern anthropology.

Born in Mırad to a family of fur and leather merchants aligned with the Uyum family, Ebek became interested at a young age in the cultures that he and his family members dealt with in their business operations in Ekuosia and Southern Baredina. With Uyum patronage, Ebek devoted himself full time to studying Baredinian cultures. Ebek developed an early form of anthropological method and theory: he divided "culture" into material, customary, and political aspects, which he attempted to describe as objectively and in-depth as possible through local contacts, written sources, and personal immersion. Ebek even applied this approach to Algazi culture and other more familiar Ekuosian cultures, especially for comparative analysis. Ebek was among the earliest post-classical scholars to study Ancient Halaria, and his theories of Letsic and Xhovian migrations form the basis of present-day scholarship on the subject.
