Abstract

In this study, the finds from Karahan Tepe, which have already been published as news articles, will be evaluated and compared with those from nearby PPN neighbourhoods in order to reveal their similarities. Of particular interest is a new find, a snake-shaped relief carved on a T shaped pillar revealed by illegal excavations, and how similar reliefs are known through finds from Gobekli Tepe.
