Iron Age cemeteries south-west of  Karkemish, Syria. Most of the graves which are mainly urn graves (phase I) date to the 8th cent. BC. Worth stressing in particular are imported Cypriot, eastern and island Greek, Phrygian (?), Egyptian-Phoenician and locally imitated wares, also pottery decorated with figures as well as terracotta figurines and plaques. Phase II (to the 4th cent. BC) with inhumations, partly in constructed tombs, yielded not just metal objects and small sculptures but also imported Greek pottery.
