Eth. DACHARE´NI (Δαχαρηνοί) an inland tribe of Arabia Felix, according to Ptolemy (6.7) identified with the Nabathaeans by Eustathius (Eustath. ad Dionys. Per. 954). Forster conjectures that they are identical with the tribe of the Dwy Dhaker, part of the great Harb nation, found by Burckhardt near the Owf and Zebeyde tribes, between Rábegh and Mekka, and also in the vicinity of Medina. (Arabia, vol. ii. p. 141.)
