Meaning & History

Ancient Greek name for the Greek island of Gyali as well as for the lower section of the Danube river. In the case of the latter, the name is a loanword from either Dacian or Thracian. It is said to mean "strong, swift", making it similar or even related to Sanskrit इषिरस् (isiras) meaning "fast, swift".
