D. Kaptan

This publication documents 185 discrete seals preserved on 406 bullae from the satrapy of Daskyleion in Hellespontine Phrygia, so far the only evidence of an archive in the western Achaemenid Empire. The seals provide glimpses of a multicultural society and reveal complex artistic involvement between Persians and the natives of Anatolia.
