The effects of the Λ(1405) (Λ * ) and range terms (the second-order effects, SOE) on the structure of multi-antikaonic nuclei are studied in a relativistic mean-field theory coupled with the nonlinear effective chiral Lagrangian. It is shown that, due to the attractive interaction from the Λ * -pole contribution, the K − mesons and the protons are more attracted each other than the case without the SOE. On the other hand, the density distribution for neutron is pushed outward due to the
