Αμαρυνθία ή Αμαρυσία Αρτέμιδα.

Amarynthus is a town in Euboea, the inhabitants of which worship Amarysia, while the festival of Amarysia which the Athenians celebrate is no less splendid than the Euboean (Paus. 1.31.5)

Amarynthia, (Amarunthia). A festival of Artemis Amarynthia or Amarysia, celebrated originally at Amarynthus, in Euboea, and afterwards at several places in Attica, such as Athmone.

Amarynthia or Amarysia (Amarunthia or Amarusia), a festival of Artemis Amarynthia or Amarysia, celebrated, as it seems, originally at Amarynthus in Euboea, with extraordinary splendour; but it was also solemnised in several places in Attica, such as Athmone (Paus. i. 31, § 3); and the Athenians held a festival, as Pausanias says, in honour of the same goddess, in no way less brilliant than that in Euboea. (Hesych. s. v. Amarusia; comp. Schol. ad Pind. Olymp. xiii. 159.) The festival in Euboea was distinguished for its splendid processions; and Strabo himself (x. p. 448) seems to have seen, in the temple of Artemis Amrynthia, a column on which was recorded the splendour with which the Eretrians at one time celebrated this festival. The inscription stated that the procession was formed of three thousand heavy-armed men, six hundred horsemen, and sixty chariots.
