Anatolian Names in °ασητας/°ασατης/°ασατας, CLuw. *aššatta-, Lyc. B *asata- and Lyc. A ahata-

Abstract

This article investigates the question of names in °ασητας/°ασατης/°ασατας attested in Greek sources from southern Anatolia. The equation with Luwian theophoric names in /°tsid(i)-/, long defended, is not possible for undeniable phonetic reasons. Thanks to the comparison with simple names attested in the Lycian, Pisidian and Greek corpora, it is suggested here to identify an onomastic stem °ασητας/°ασατης/°ασατας, adapted from an abstract noun corresponding to Luw. *aššatta-, Lyc. B *asata- and Lyc. A ahata-, and associated with several deities as an epithet. The various vocalisms attested in Greek sources are geographically distributed, thus reflecting differences among languages of the Luwic subgroup. On the semantic level, the contexts in which the abstract *aššatta-/*asata-/ ahata- is used argue in favour of the meaning of “peace”, despite its recent questioning.
