DARADRAE (Δαράδραι, Ptol. 7.1.42), a mountain tribe who lived in the upper Indus. Forbiger conjectures that they are the same people whom Strabo (xv. p.706) calls Derdae, and Pliny Dardae (6.19), and perhaps as the Dadicae of Herodotus (3.91, 7.66). It is possible, however, that these latter people lived still further to the N., perhaps in Sogdiana, though their association with the Gandarii (Sanscrit Gandháras) points to a more southern locality.
