Same material, variously, in other lexica.
The headword as an adjective is attested as "having to do with a lamb" (cf. alpha 1607), e.g. of a lambswool garment (see LSJ s.v.). The same could therefore be true of rivers, i.e. an adjective hellenized from the Latin amnis; there was, however, a river Amnias in Paphlagonia (N.Turkey), mentioned by Strabo 12.3.40.
