Mount Antipas is a location mentioned only in the Book of Mormon; there is no independent confirmation of its existence or naming. According to the Book of Mormon, Mount Antipas was located in or near Onidah in the greater land of Nephi (Alma 47:5,7).

Account in the Book of Mormon

Some of the Lamanite army, led by Lehonti, had fled and gathered on the top of Mount Antipas to prepare for battle against Amalickiah, the Zoramite, who would later become the Lamanite king. Amalickiah's army camped in the valley near the mount and sent a secret embassy by night to talk with Lehonti. Because of the number of times that the embassy climbed to the top and descended back to the valley in a single night, the mount could not have been very tall. Eventually Amalickiah convinced Lehonti to meet and discuss a plan in which Lehonti's army descended the mount and surrounded the army of Amalickiah. In the morning Amalickiah's army surrendered, and Amalickiah was made leader of both armies. (Alma 47).
