HAMA´XIA (Ἁμαξία), a small town in the western part of Cilicia Aspera. (Strab. xiv. p.669.) It had a good roadstead for ships, and excellent cedars for ship-building. (Lucan 8.259.) Hamaxia is perhaps the same place as Anaxium (Stadiasm. Mar. Magni, § 188), which, however, is placed west of Coracesium, so that it would belong to Pamphylia. (Comp. Leake, Asia Minor, p. 197.)
