Highland Gods: Rock-Art and Religion in Southwest Anatolia (Prof. Tyler Jo Smith)

Sponsored by San Diego AIA

AIA Society Event: San Diego

Friday, October 19, 2012 - 7:15pm

Location:
Mesa College, Room G101
United States

Archeological exploration of the region of Lycia in southwest Turkey has led to the discovery of a large number of rock-cut relief sculptures. Inscriptions indicate that the function of these reliefs was religious, and that they were dedicated to both Greek and indigenous gods and goddesses. The reliefs presented in this talk belong to the region of northern Lycia and Pisidia, and have been studied in detail according to their cults, artistic styles, and religious meaning. Most of them were recorded as part of the Balboura Survey and the Pisidian Survey, each conducted under the auspices of the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara. The various sculpted types will be introduced, but most attention will be given to reliefs showing the local rider-god, often called ‘Kakasbos’, as well to those representing the Dioskouroi and an unnamed ‘goddess’. The process and methods of archaeological survey and ethnographic research in this regions will also be presented, as will the discovery of reliefs from the excavations at Hacı musalar Höyük in central Lycia.
