Comments: 
Athina (Y237) is classified as belonging to the Alaya-Athima language group, a set of initial-dropping languages not closely related to others of this type in the area. Alpher describes them in regional blocs, with Athina in the south-western bloc in the middle stretches of the Gilbert River. Other members of this group include Awu Alaya (Kuku Thaypan) Y84 ; Aghu Tharrnggala Y65; Awu Arungu / Awu Alwang / Agu Aloja Y219; Ogh Alungul Y199; Kuku Mini Y94; Ogh Angkula 197; Ikarranggal Y198; Takalak Y125; Ogh Awarrangg Y201; Ongunjan Y206; Kokiny Y188 (2016:41-42).
