Dindari or Dindarii (Greek Δινδάριοι),[1] was a tribe that was a branch of the Scordisci.[2] They dwelled by the Drina valley, of present-day Bosnia and Serbia.

After the Roman conquest of the Scordisci, the civitas of the Dindari was formed (Dindariorum, listed by Pliny the Elder within Dalmatia), whom a fragmentary inscription appears to locate in the Skelani area.[3]
