The most informative sources for personal names at Heraclea Pontica are the stamps engraved on the neck of amphoras manufactured in the workshops of this city and the external inscriptions mentioning Heracleots abroad, whereas the local epigraphic crop is rather poor. The name-stock is predominantly Greek, with a quite marked Megarian stamp. Although the evidence for the non-Greek onomastic stock is scarce, it is possible to identify some Iranian, Bithynian, Paphlagonian and Phrygian names, as well as some Lallnamen, which the author tries to classify and to comment on. Among the bearers of non-Greek names there is no person of high standing. It is surprising that there are only a few Bithynian and Paphlagonian names. Therefore, nothing that might individualise the name-stock of the Mariandynian hinterland is to be found.
