Some names of gods are also known as Dryalus (Dionysus) and Bendis (Artemis).

Some names of kings too:
* Agis
* Lycceius (also Lyppeius or Lycpeius )
* Patraus
* Derronaios
* Dropion
* Audoleon
* Eupolemenos
* Bastareus
* Nicarchus
And names of Paionian tribes:
* Aestraei
* Agrianes
* Laeaeans
* Odomantians
* Paeoplians
* Siropaionians (or Siropaeonians)

Athenaeus (ix. p. 398) implies that their language was similar to Mysian.(this reinforces the probability of connection with the Phrygians).
alot of names ending in -os-us-on-s thus they must also be considered Greek.........
