Named for the women of Scythia near the rivers Tanais and Thermodon. They had no men and joined with their neighbours, killed the sons and educated the daughters of whom the teats were burnt so that they could discharge the arrows more rapidly. The name means “without teat”. Heracles {see planet  (5143)} and Theseus fought against the Amazones. The most famous queens are Penthesileia and Hippolyte {see, respectively, planets  (271) and  (10295)}. (I. van Houten-Groeneveld) _ _.
