    A titular see of Phænicia Secunda. Danaba is mentioned by Ptolemy (V, xv, 24) as a town in the territory of Palmyra. According to Peutinger's table (where it is called Danova) it was a Roman military station between Damascus and Palmyra, twenty miles from Nezala. Danaba figures in an Antiochene "Notitia episcopatuum" of the sixth century as a suffragan of Damascus, and remained so till perhaps the tenth century. Only two bishops are known: Theodore, who attended the Council of Chalcedon in 451, and subscribed the letter of the bishops of the province to Emperor Leo I in 458, and Eulogius, present at the Second Council of Constantinople in 553 (Lequien, Or. Christ., III, 847). Today Danaba is probably represented by Hafer, a village five miles southeast of Sadad, in the vilayet of Damascus. About 300 Jacobite Syrians live there, most of whom have been converted to Catholicism.
