Historical Examples of amphictyony
Sometimes this tendency to religious fraternity took a form called an Amphictyony, different from the common festival.
Thus there was an Amphictyony of seven cities at the holy island of Caluria, close to the harbor of Troezen.
This later class of festivals agreed with the Amphictyony in being of a special and exclusive character, not open to all Greeks.
It did not even prevent members of the Amphictyony fighting one another.History Of Ancient Civilization
