Abstract :
During the year 2000 excavations ar Bademağacı Höyük a stamp seal was found in debris soil from a mixed context along with a group of finds mainly belonging to the Middle Bronze Age, which included a 'red cross bowl' and wheelmade, string cut vessels and bronze pins. Our interest was aroused by this lead seal because of the substance it is made of and also the striking nature of the motif on the stamp surface. The similarity observed between this seal and several other seals prompted us to examine the subject in more detail.
