Antiochis was one of the ten tribes (phylai) into which the Ancient Athenians were divided.[1][2]

Location and history[edit]

Is named after Antiochus, son of Heracles and Meda.[3][4]

Antiochis comptised 13 demes: Aigilia (Aỉγιλía), Alopeke, Amphitrope, Anaphlystos, Atene, Besa, Eitea, Eroiadai, Kolonai, Krioa, Pallene, Semachidai, and Thorai.[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]

Socrates belonged to this tribe.[10][11] 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.[11][12][13]

Aristeides was in command of this tribe's contingent during the Battle of Marathon.[14]
