Antigonia Psaphara or Antigonia (Greek: Αντιγόνεια) also transliterated as Antigonea and Antigoneia was a Hellenistic city in Macedon in the district Crusis (Krousis) in Chalcidice, placed by Livy between Aeneia and Pallene.[1] It is called by Ptolemy[2] Psaphara (Psaphara) probably in order to distinguish it from Antigonia in Paeonia.[3]
