This name originates from Bulgaria. It is part of the Bulgaria Gazetteer and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
The peak rising to 2100 m in Imeon Range on Smith Island in the South Shetland Islands. Situated respectively 2.4 km and 850 m NE of the two heights of the summit Mount Foster, 3.4 km SSW of Mount Pisgah, 16 km SW of Cape Smith, and 16 km NE of Cape James. Precipitous and partly ice-free SE slopes. Confirmed to be a separate peak rather than part of Mount Foster by the team of Greg Landreth that made the first ascent of the latter in 1996. Named after Exarch Antim I (1816-1888), the first head of the Bulgarian Exarchate reestablishing the autocephaly of the Bulgarian Church in 1870.
