The 1901 Jewish Encyclopedia
A Palestinian, two of whose Scriptural interpretations are preserved in the Midrash: one to Genesis 26:14 (Gen. R. 64:7; compare Sanh. 58b; Yalḳ. on Proverbs 12:11), and the other to Ecclesiastes 4:1 (Lev. R. 32:8; Eccl. R. ad loc.). The time of Daniel may only be conjectured. As the rabbis mentioned in the contexts are of the third and fourth centuries, and as the one cited after him, and supplementing his views, is of the fourth generation of amoraim, Daniel can not be placed earlier than that generation. Bacher ("Ag. Pal. Amor." 3:761) includes him among those whose period is uncertain.
