	Perhaps I am missing something here, but why should Anatolian
place-names with /-nt-/ (or for that matter /-nd-/) be borowed into Greek
with /-nth-/?  I suppose we could say that the form was originally
/-ndh-/, but the Anatolian forms in /-nt/ are generally considered older.
(A change of /nt/ to /nd/ is more probably anyway, as in /seventy/ ->
