MANI´TAE (Μανῖται), an inland tribe of Arabia Felix, situated west of the Thanuetae, and south of the Salaperni, north of the “inner Frankincense” country ( ἐντὸς Σμυρνοφόρος, Ptol. 6.7.23). The position of Ptolemy's “Manitae,” west of his Katanitae, and of Zames Mons, together with the near resemblance of name, implies their being the same with the Mazeyne of Burckhardt, the most eastern of the Harb tribes, situated on the borders of Karym in the line of country between Medina and Derayeh. (Forster, Geog. of Arabia, vol. ii. p. 249.)
