-------------------------------------------------------------
The discovery of tablets at Thebes reveals the existence of some occupational names, previously unknown in Mycenaean Greek. Among them is the word to-pa-po-ro-i, which appears in three tablets (Av 101.6b, Fq 341.1 et Gp 184.1). A close examination of these texts indicates that this word should designate an occasional function linked with the religious sphere. The first element of the compound, to-pa, is etymologically unclear and three possible interpretations have been proposed. According to them, this word would designate a basket bearer, a torch bearer or a rope bearer. This paper offers a review of these interpretations, taking into account morphological, etymological and phonetic evidences.
