xi, 149 p. Series: Oriental institute communications ; no. 14. Small tear on top of spine. Previous owners' names written on ffep. Text is unmarked by underlining or notations. Alishar Hüyük was an ancient Near Eastern city. It is near the modern village of Alisar, Sorgun. Alishar Hüyük was occupied beginning in the Chalcolithic Period, through the Bronze Age and the Hittites, and into Phrygian times. A number of Hittite-era cuneiform tablets in Old Assyrian of the Cappadocia type were found there. Mention in those tablets of the town Amkuwa has caused speculation that the site is the Ankuwa mentioned in other Hittite texts. The site was excavated between 1927 and 1932 by a team from the Oriental Institute of Chicago. Excavation resumed in 1992, led by Ronald Gorny as part of the Alisar Regional Project, though most of the work has been at nearby Çadir Höyük.[Wikipedia] Size: 25 cm tall. Bookseller Inventory #
