Hauara, a titular see of Palestina Tertia, suffragan of Petra. Peutinger's map locates a place of this name thirty-eight miles south of Petra (see Clermont-Ganneau in "Revue biblique", N. S., III, 419-421). The city is also mentioned by Ptolemy (V, 16) and by the "Notitia dignitatum" (ed. Boecking, 79), which mentions the garrison of equites sagittarii indigenae. This Hauara, which is situated between Aila and Petra, is certainly distinct from the Hauara of Stephen of Byzantium, the leuke kome of the Greeks, a harbor of the Red Sea, but it has been impossible to discover its location. It is unknown even when it became a titular see, because it formerly had no bishop, and does not figure in any episcopal "Notitiae". It must not be confounded with Haura, a Jacobite see in Mesopotamia.
