RAMBA´CIA (Ῥαμβακία, Arrian, Anab. 6.21), a village of the Oritae, the first which was taken by Alexander the Great in his march westwards from the Indus. There can be no certainty as to its exact position, but the conjecture of Vincent seems well grounded that it is either the Ram-nagar or the Ram-gur of the Ayín Akbarí. (Vincent, Voyage of Nearchus, vol. i. p. 185.)
