In antiquity the city was known under the ancient Greek: Λυχνίς (Lychnis) and Latin: Lychnidus, probably meaning “city of light”, from Greek λυχνίς (lychnis, gen. lychnidos), “a precious stone that emits light”, from λύχνος (lychnos), “lamp, portable light”. By 879 AD, the town was no longer called Lychnidos but was referred to by the assimilated native people as Ohrid, possibly from the Slavic words vo hrid, meaning “on the hill”, as the ancient town of Lychnidos was at the top of the hill. In Macedonian and the other South Slavic languages, the name of the city is Ohrid (Охрид). In Albanian, the city is known as Ohër or Ohri and in modern Greek Ochrida (Οχρίδα, Ωχρίδα) and Achrida (Αχρίδα).
