Abstract :
This article discusses the architectural remains from Layer X of the important site of Tille Höyük, located in the Euphrates Valley, in modern-day Turkey. The architectural complex identified there is usually considered to belong to the Achaemenid period. In the paper the analysis of certain characteristics of the Tille X complex and considerations regarding the dating of this important phase are discussed; a pre-Achaemenid period date (first half of the 6th century BC) is proposed for the construction of the complex.
