Eth. CARMAEI a tribe of the Minaei [MINAEI], mentioned by Pliny (6.28. s. 32), probably the same as the Ἀκαρμὰν βασίλειον of Ptolemy (6.16), which Forster identifies with the modern town Karn-al-Manzil in the Hedjaz between Tayif and Mekka, about 50 miles SE. of the latter (Arabia, vol. i. pp. 133, 134, vol. ii. pp. 255--258).
