AMPHIGENEIA

AMPHIGENEIA (Ἀμφιγένεια: Αμφίγενεύς), one of the towns belonging to Nestor (Hom. Il. 2.593), was placed by some ancient critics in Messenia, and by others in Macistia, a district in Triphylia. Strabo assigns it to Macistia near the river Hypsoeis, where in his time stood a temple of Leto. (Steph. B. sub voce Strab. p. 349.)
