Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Dinaites
DINAITES ( Ezra 4:9 ). A people settled in Samaria by Osnappar ( i.e. probably Ashurbanipal). They have been variously identified with the Da-ja-Ã§ni , a tribe of western Armenia, mentioned in inscriptions of Tiglathpileser I.; and with the inhabitants of Deinaver , a Median city, or of Din-Sharru near Susa. The last view seems the most probable.
