DA´SEAE (Δασέαι: Eth. Δασεάτης), a town of Arcadia in the district Parrhasia, on the road from Megalopolis to Phigalea, 7 stadia from Macareae, and 29 stadia from Megalopolis. It was in ruins in the time of Pausanias, as its inhabitants had been removed to Megalopolis upon the foundation of the latter. Its name was apparently derived from the thick woods, the remains of which still cover the heights of Deli Hassani, near which Daseae must have stood. (Paus. 8.3.3, 8.27.4, 8.36.9; Curtius. Peloponnesos, vol. i. p. 294.)
