Akın Temür

Keywords: Samsun, Amisos, Grave Stele, Classical Period


Most of the grave steles observed in Greek art, even though they demonstrate specific typological characteristics depending on the region and the era, continue the tradition of Attica grave stele. Moreover, the impact of Ion sculpture schools is also observed clearly in Anatolia. The stele that is the subject of this study is one of the examples on which these impacts could be followed most clearly. In this context, the aim of this study is to date the stele by comparing it to the similar ones and based on the stylistic and typological examination of the figures on it.
