Eth. HAMMANIENTES a Libyan tribe beyond the Macae, who dwelt 12 days' journey W. of the Greater Syrtis in an oasis of the sandy desert, and made their houses partly of stone, and partly of rock-salt cut from the hills by which they were surrounded. (Plin. Nat. 5.5.) Solinus (28) calls them AMANTES. Manner supposes them to be the ATARANTES of Herodotus.
