Pleeeez! It's a personal name, not an ethnonym, and it's Vologaesus (Wologaisos), actually. Looks strangely Celtic-like (as if = *Valo-gaisos 'princely spear'?), but then perhaps a reflex of *gHaisos, whether inherited or borrowed (from Greek or Celtic), existed in Thracian.
Anyway, you can't derive Slavic *volxU (-lo-, -la-, -olo-)  from anything like that.

... The name is to find in book LIV : 34 Dio Cassius tells us about a leader of the Bessi who was called Vologeses ( I typed wrong before, so not Vologenses but Vologeses) Of course this is long time before the slavs appeared at the border of roman empire , but there are some indicies for me, this is why I asked for it.

The greek word is,unfortunately, not in my book. YOu are right in your assumption, I think that Vologeses=voloh:-)
