ATTI´CITUS (Ἀττίκιτος, Ptol. 5.9), or ANTICEI´TES (Ἀντικείτης, Strab. xi. pp. 494, 495), a great river in the country of the Maeotae, in Sarmatia Asiatica, with two mouths, the one falling into the Palus Maeotis, and the other into the Euxine; but the latter formed first the lake of Corocondametis (Κοροκονδαμῆτις), so named from the town of Corocondame. It is evidently the Kuban. According to Strabo, it was also called Hypanis, and Ptolemy calls its southern arm Vardanes.
