The paper concerns several Greek names of the Milesian colony of Istros: Istrodoros, an epichoric name in the city bearing the name of the river; Ietrodoros, a theophoric name relating to the Ionian god Apollo Ietros; finally, Achillodoros, a name reflecting the popularity of the cult of Achilles in the north-western part of the Black Sea. Local identity, Ionian heritage and cults are all manifest.
