This chapter examines Thracian personal names in military settlements in the Hellenistic region of Bithynia. It analyses the distribution of Thracian names on monuments and inscriptions in the vicinity of Nikaia, Prusa, Kios, and Nikomedeia. The findings suggest that, as a kingdom, Bithynia was dominated by an elite of Thracian descent and that these families lived on estates in the countryside. As a result there is no evidence for these families from Bithynian cities.

Keywords:   Thracian personal names, Bithynia, monuments, inscriptions, Nikaia, Prusa, Kios, Nikomedeia
