History[edit]

The athletic organization's parent athletic union, the A.O. A.C. Dafni, was founded in 1939, when the sports club started with a football club. In 1967, the athletic union added the basketball club, A.O. Dafni B.C., as one of its sports sections.

In 1969, the team competed in the Greek A1 League for the first time, and stayed in the A1 until 1975. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the club often competed in the A1. Legendary Euroleague player Theo Papaloukas played with the club from 1997 to 1999. In the 1998-99 season, Papaloukas led Dafni B.C. to the Greek A2 League divisional championship. In 2010, Dafni and A.O. Amyntas merged, creating A.O. Amyntas Dafnis. This season, the team competes in the Greek B League, south division.
