siegelj.jpg

Drawing of a significant find in 1995 which indicates links of Late Bronze Age Troy to the Hittites in central Anatolia. The find is a biconvex bronze seal with a diameter of 2.3 cm and was discovered in a Troy VII context (12.th century B.C.). The obverse contains the name of a scribe written in Luwian hieroglyphs, the reverse that of a woman. It is the first prehistoric written evidence from Troy.(J.D.Hawkins and D.F.Easton, A Hieroglyphic Seal from Troia, Studia Troica 6: 111-118)
