This is the eighth volume of the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names and the third of three volumes that comprise the personal names attested in Asia Minor. This particular volume is concerned with its interior, incorporating the ancient regions of Phrygia, Milyas, Pisidia, Galatia, Kappadokia, Paphlagonia, Pontos, and Armenia Minor, among others. Inland Asia Minor was untouched by Greek settlement until after the conquests of Alexander the Great and the large number of non-Greek names originating in the languages of the indigenous peoples are of particular interest.
