Re: Where is Ariopol? #general

My grandfather's place of residence, as listed in the Hamburg
Passenger List is Ariopol, Russland.

Does anyone know where in Russia is a place named Ariopol?
I have not been able to find, so far, any reference to Ariopol or
Krasch on the internet.
The ending of the placename Ariopol is not Slavic, and suggests an
originally Greek location, of which there were plenty in the Black Sea
area. (Cf. Taraspol) Note also Odessa. Of course if part of the Russian
Empire, it would be considered "Russia". Interestingly, there were ethnic
Greeks up to the present in the USSR whose ancestors had lived there >from
time immemorial.
