Pre Greek Names in Greece and Anatolia ending with: -ndos, -nthos/-ntha, -(s)sos/-(s)sa, -naSince Paul Krestchmer 1896, Blegen's 1928 a linguistic union in Pre-Greek Turkey and Greece was known and well established and accepted. Furnee's, Beekes' works also uncovered pre-greek substratum on Greek language to the point that can be said Greek language is based on a previous non-Indo-European language.
Based on the research so far including my own work one can know associate the city names ending with the people!

Etymology of the word Turk based on Mesopotamian written records
From Sumerian and modern Turkish Ug/Ag/Aug/Og, to Etruscan Augur, Latin Augeo, and the First Roman Emperor Augustus
Scythian, Scyth are UzKut / Sukut, union of Turkish People Uz (Uguz/Oguz) and Kut (Ugut/Ogut) known from Mesopotamian Cuneiform Records, January 3, 2018
Etymology of "Rome" (Roma, Italy)
the Origins of the Etruscans!
How I proved that Ugur Turks / Hurrians were the founders of Ancient Greece
-ndos, -nthos/-ntha, -(s)sos/-(s)sa, -naFirst one should draw a line connecting city names under these headings from Iraq, Syria, Turkey to Greece and Italy. Then identify each with the already identified groups of Turks, and then find Indo-European and Afroasiatic transformation in names.
Turks are the most mixed people of all: with Indo-Europeans and Afroasiatic people and among themselves with different cultures and dialects.
There are three major groups: Ugut, Ugur, and Uguz Turks and then subgroupings under each general group. Az, Uz, As, Us are Uguz Turks. Etruscan are a mix of Ugur, Uguz, Scythians (Uguz and Ugut) and Indo-Iranian-Europeans.
Troy (from Turog) it is Ugur Turk (Hurrian) and Etruscan (Etruscans' main group are Ugur Turks). Tur is associated with Ugur Turks mostly.
-sa and -tha ending are As/Az (like in Augeas). Ugaz. z>s>th
-na Etruscan. Smyrna is Usumurna: Uguz, Etruscan. Probably from Sumerian/Hurrian AN, ANA.
Ephesos: There is no f in Turkish, this is probably Indo-Europeanized and or AfroAsiatized Az/As and Uz/Us Turks.
Assos: As and Uz Turks.
Needless to say, my suggestions are oversimplifications. I have shown these examples as a suggestion. There is a lot of work, linguistic, archaeological, genetic to be done to actually analyze the names and associate them with specific people.
Even then it may be impossible due to the mixing of the people but at least migration routes can be determined and linguists can work on linguistic transformations.
This suggestion may work on some cities and not work on others. It also depends on the existence of written records.
