For the female name Βαβεις, see Zgusta 1964: 115-6 §133-15, and cf. MAMA XI 215 (1954/39: Sülüklü) and MAMA XI 323 (1956/174: Perta). The personal name Βούβαλος (‘antelope’) is discussed by Robert 1963: 22-33; it is also attested in this region in MAMA VII 328 (Sülüklü) and CIG III 3882d (Prymnessos).
