ODOMERA ōd’ ə mĭr’ ə (̓Οδομηρα, ̓Οδοααρρής). A Bedouin chief, defeated by Jonathan the Maccabee in a raid (1 Macc 9:66) in 156 b.c.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

It is not certain whether Odomera was an independent Bedouin chief, perhaps an ally of the Syrians, or an officer of Bacchides. He was defeated by Jonathan in his campaign against Bacchides (1 Macc 9:66) in 156 BC.
