(Ἀμνίας; Amnías). River in  Paphlagonia (modern Gök Irmak), rises west of Kastamonu and flows into the  Halys east of Boyabat. The road from the Propontis to the Halys (Severan milestones) ran through its valley (Domanitis, Str. 12,3,40), the centre of the territory of  Pompeiopolis. In 89 BC, the first battle of the Mithridatic Wars was fought there (App. Mith. 18).
