The Tribe of Dan, also sometimes spelled as "Dann", (Hebrew: דָּן, Dan) was one of the Tribes of Israel.

The census held at Mt. Sinai (Num 1:39) shows that the numbers of this tribe was 62,700 warriors men.[1] Just before entering Canaan, another census pointed that this number raised to 64,400.[1]
