THARRANA a place on the great line of road which led across the desert from the Euphrates to Hatrae (Al-Hathr). It is marked on the Tabula Pentingeriana. It has been conjectured by Mannert (5.2. p. 233) that the name is a mistake for Charrana, another form of Charrae; but this hypothesis seems hardly tenable. Reichard believes it is represented by the present Araban.
