Abstract :
In this contribution, three reasonably short Luwian hieroglyphic Late Bronze Age texts are discussed, one on a seal-ring from a private collection and two on stone monuments. It will be argued that as far as dating is concerned, the text on the seal-ring may be assigned to an early stage of the Late Bronze Age and as such constitutes the earliest Luwian hieroglyphic inscription of some length, whereas the ones on stone monuments may safely be attributed to the reigns of the Hittite Great Kings Tudhaliyas IV and Suppiluliumas II, respectively, in the final stage of the Late Bronze Age.
