Dansara is a former Catholic titular see, now suppressed. The original diocese was in Osrhoene; the site of the city has not been identified. Its name is often written Dausara; such forms as Lansara, etc. are incorrect.
Dansara, probably at the same time, became an episcopal see suffragan to Edessa, for it figures in the Notitia episcopatuum of the Patriarch of Antioch, Anastasius , and its bishop Nonnus was present at the Fifth Oecumenical Council, held at Constantinople in 553.
No other bishop is known. It is not certain that it was still in existence in the 10th century.
