Dafnis B.C. is a Greek professional basketball club. The club's full name is Athlitikos Omilos Dafnis B.C., or A.O. Dafnis B.C. The club is located in Dafni, Attica, a suburb of the city of Athens, Greece. The colors of the team are yellow and black, and the team's symbol is the laurel branch.


The athletic organization's parent athletic union, the A.O. A.C. Dafni, was founded in 1939, when the sports club started with a football club. In 1967, the athletic union added the basketball club, A.O. Dafni B.C., as one of its sports sections.

In 1969, the team competed in the top-tier level Greek Basket League for the first time, and stayed there until 1975. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the club often competed in the Greek top-tier league (A1). Legendary EuroLeague player Theo Papaloukas, played with the club from 1997 to 1999. In the 1998–99 season, Papaloukas led Dafni B.C. to the Greek 2nd Division championship. In 2010, Dafni and A.O. Amyntas merged, creating A.O. Amyntas Dafnis. In 2015, the two clubs broke their merger, and Dafni was reformed.
