*Da=mis, (*Da/mis).

1. A Messenian, who was one of the competitors for the throne of Messenia on the death of Euphaes, when Aristodemus was elected, about B. C. 729. On the death of Aristodemus (about B. C. 723), Damis was chosen general with supreme power, but without the title of king. He failed, however, to restore the fallen fortunes of his country, and on his death, which took place soon after, Messenia submitted to the Lacedaemonians. (Paus. 4.10, 13.)
