Abstract:The rendering in Romanian of toponyms of Greek and Latin origin is an unsolved difficulty, whether it be in translations of ancient literature by classicists or in scientific articles, books, encyclopaedias and works in other academic areas. In this paper, I outline the main possible criteria for the integration of such toponyms within Romanian. The first indicator for integration should be sought in Romanian literature’s reception of Antiquity. Besides the reception of Antiquity, I also put forward the grammatical criteria that need to be outlined, including: inflexion in Romanian, the postpositive definite article in Romanian, affiliation with lexical and grammatical categories, inversion of the singular and plural and/or genders, and so on.
Key words:toponyms of the Antiquity, translation theory, Romanian orthography
