DARA

DARA (Δάρα, Ptol. 6.8.4).


1.

A small river of Carmania, at no great distance from the frontier of Persis. There can be little doubt that it is the same as the Dora of Marcian (Peripl. p. 21) and the Daras of Pliny (6.25. s. 28). Dr. Vincent conjectures (Voyage of Nearchus, vol. i. p. 372) that it is the same as the Dara-bin or Derra-bin of modern charts.


2.

A city in Parthia. [APAVARCTICENE]


3.

A city in Mesopotamia. [DARAS] [V]
