Abstract

The paper deals with three cases of a Slavic theonym standing as substitute for an ancient mythological name: Dajbog in NE Serbia for the Roman Aesculapius, originally perhaps for an autochthonous deity akin to Zalmoxis; Dažьbogъ (Old Russian form of the same name) in the Slavic translation of Malala’s chronicle for the Greek Helios and Veles in West-Serbian toponymy for Apollo.
