Samp'sames (Σαμψάμης v.r. Σαμψάκης; Vulg. Lampsacus, Samsames), a name which occurs in the list of those to whom the Romans are said to have sent letters in favor of the Jews (1 Macc. 15:23). The name is probably not that of a sovereign (as it appears to be taken in the A.V.), but of a place, which Grimm identifies with Samsun, on the coast of the Black Sea, between Sinope and Trebizond.
