In the lower town of Sirkeli Höyük in Plain Cilicia, in a building dating from the late 8th century or early 7th century BC, a tabloid amulet was found which was possibly used as a stamp seal. It bears a Hieroglyphic Luwian inscription and at least one cuneiform character, a combination that is very unusual for Iron Age seals. The inscription mentions a man of Lamaze(n)ti(ya) and thus, again, raises the question of the ancient name of Sirkeli Höyük.
