This chapter examines an unpublished inscription which reveals the names of the twelve tribes of Atrax and a number of other civic subdivisions. The findings indicate that while most of the tribal names can be related to known anthroponyms, there are some rarities, and some interesting links to the early settlement of the region. For example, the tribe Thamiesis relates to Thamiai, the region where the Thessaloi originated.

Keywords:   names, Atrax, tribes, civic subdivisions, tribal names, anthroponyms, Thamiesis, Thamiai, Thessaloi
