daïs (plural daïses)

  1. Dated spelling of dais.
    • 1887, H. Rider Haggard, She: A History of Adventure[1]:
      At last we came to the head of the cave, where there was a rock daïs almost exactly similar to the one on which we had been so furiously attacked, a fact that proved to me that these daïs must have been used as altars, probably for the celebration of religious ceremonies, and more especially of rites connected with the interment of the dead.
