Eth. CANDARI (Eth. Κάνδαροι, Ptol. 6.12.4), a tribe in the NW. part of Sogdiana. They are mentioned by Pliny (6.26) in connection with the Chorasmii; but they would appear to be to the E. of the Kharezm country. It seems probable that the name is derived from the Sanscrit Gandháras, a tribe beyond the Indus, mentioned in the Mahabhárat.
