image of Ancient Civilizations from Scythia to Siberia

The author publishes a tomb stone of the 1st half of the 4th century BC discovered at the necropolis of the Bosporan city of Myrmekion (on the territory of Kerch). The name of the second buried person Kυαιανιζ should be probably read as Kυλιανιζ. The latter is known from a 4th century epitaph CIRB 162 and is often to be found on the ceramic stamps of Sinope as the name factory-owners. The name seems to be Paphlagonian, derived from the Hittito-Luvian anthroponymic stem Kul(a)-. Anatolian name of the father "Aττηζ known on the Bosporus from some other inscriptions of the 4th century BC, is attested in Myrmekion in CIRB 178. The author gives other examples from Bosporan epigraphy of how immigrant families from Asia Minor preserved their traditional names. The epigraphic data make it possible to speak about a mass migration of super ficially Hellenized barbarians (often with their families) from the northern parts of Asia Minor to the Bosporus in the 5th and 4th centuries BC.
