AMFIGENIA (Ancient city) KYPARISSIA
Eth. Amphigeneus. One of the towns belonging to Nestor (Horn. Il. ii. 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.
It is the most probable location after the excavations conducted by professor S. Marinatos in 1960, whose findings date from the ceramic to the late-mycenaean periods.
