Taikon, Johan Dimitr
(fl. 19th century)
   Sweden. Coppersmith and storyteller. He traveled in Russia and Scandinavia. Taikon's stories were recorded by the Gypsiologist Carl Herman Tillhagen and published as Taikon berattar. These and other materials he produced were the basis for the study of the Coppersmith (Kalderash) dialect of Romani by Olof Gjerdman and Erik Ljungberg.
