Аpsilia (абх. Аҧстәыла) (the second name - Tsebelda) was the ancient and early name for the Abkhaz tribe Apsilae (апсилов).
The history is known from the 1st century AD. The culture is called the Tsebelda culture. It was absorbed by the surrounding, more powerful principality Abasgoi, in approximately 730 AD. Later, and after the inclusion of other territories and people including Misiminia, it became the Kingdom of Abkhazia.
