CANDARA (Κάνδαρα: Eth. Κανδαρηνός), a place “in Paphlagonia, three schoeni from Gangra, and a village Thariba.” (Steph. B. sub voce This is a quotation from some geographer, and it is worthy of notice that the distance is given in schoeni. Stephanus adds that there was a temple of Hera Candarene. As the site of Gangra is known, perhaps Candara may be discovered. [G, L.]
