Like many other two-letter sequences, es may be interpreted as an abbreviation. One or two names in es° are attested at the same necropolis (eskikorikos, eskiko), though it could be any compound name with a first element e(χ)s- or the theonym (A)Esus, e.g. Esunertos 'having the strength of Esus' or Esugenos 'born from Esus' (cf. further examples in Delamarre 2007: 98 f.) (Stifter in Marchesini & Stifter 2018: 147).
