Vermutungen zum Namen Mastaura

Diether Schürr

Abstract


Speculations on the Name Mastaura

The name of the town Mastaura may have had its origin in the Lydian language. The village Mastavra in Mysia could stem from the Lydians too, and Mastaura, attested as the seat of a Bishop in Lycia, could be so too, but only if it was situated in the Kabalis, which is very uncertain. The Western Anatolian personal name Masturi, documented about 1200 years earlier, may be connected with the toponym.
