Amphictyonʹic Council

.

A council of confederate Greeks from twelve of their tribes, each of which had two deputies. The council met twice a year—in the spring at Delphi, and in the autumn at Thermopʹylæ. According to fable, it was so called from Amphicʹtyon, son of Deucaʹlion, its supposed founder. (Greek, amphictionës, dwellers round about.)
