Amphithea is the name of several women in Greek mythology, including the wife of Autolycus and the mother of Anticlea who was the mother of Odysseus. From what I could find, Amphithea comes from the same word for amphitheater, referring to an open, outdoor theater used for sports and entertainment. It’s composed from Ancient Greek elements amphí (on both sides) via a PIE root word; and théa (view, sight) so the name would essentially mean “viewing from both sides” or something like that.
