Eth. RHAABE´NI (Ῥααβηνοί), a people of Arabia Deserta, next to the Agabeni, who were on the confines of Arabia Felix. (Ptol. 5.19.2.) Above them were the Masani; the Orcheni lay between them and the NW. extremity of the Persian Gulf. Mr. Forster justly remarks that “the description of Ptolemy rather indicates the direction, than defines the positions, of these several tribes.” (Geog. of Arabia, vol. ii. p. 238.)
