Excavations at Yanik Tepe in the Urmia Basin, northwest Iran, were conducted by Charles Burney in the 1960s. This paper considers aspects of the Achaemenid-era occupation, including an addition to previously published accounts of the pottery. The date of the defensive ditch around the summit of the mound is discussed and a detailed account of the small but massively built structure on the summit of the mound, probably dating to the Partho-Sassanian period, is given together with an attempt at architectural reconstruction.
