AMPHAXI´TIS

AMPHAXI´TIS (Ἀμφαξῖτις), the maritime part of Mygdonia in Macedonia, on the left bank of the Axius, which, according to Strabo, separated Bottiaea from Amphaxitis. The name first occurs in Polybius. No town of this name is mentioned by ancient writers, though the Amphaxii are found on coins. (Pol. 5.97; Strab. p. 330; Ptol. 3.13. § § 10,14; Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. p. 449.)
