Antiochis (tribe) is a number of persons belonging to an organisation (tribal group) phylai Antiochis in Attica, ancient Greece.[1][2]

The place[edit]

Is eponymously named after Antiochus, son of Heracles and (by union with) Meda.[3][4]

Antiochis was made of 13 demes. Aigilia (Aỉγιλía), Alopeke, Amphitrope, Anaphlystos, Atene, Besa, Eitea, Eroiadai, Kolonai, Krioa, Pallene, Semachidai, Thorai, were the demes of Antiochis.[5][6][7][8]

Phalerum was a harbour belonging to the tribe. From this harbour the voyages of Theseus and Menestheus were said to have begun, for Crete and Troy respectively.[9]

The tribe[edit]

The Antiochis tribe was forced out of Western Asia during 190 B.C.[10]

Socrates belonged to this tribe.[11][12] The tribe was in possession of the prytany in the Council, at the time of the events concerning the ten generals active for Athens' navy in the battle of Arginusae.[12][13][14]

The Battle of Marathon[edit]

Aristeides was in command of this tribe's contingent during this battle.[15]
