Özet

This paper focuses on a Late Bronze Age "kohl box" from Tepebag Hoyuk (Plain Cilicia, Turkey), one of the few well-dateable and securely-stratified examples of peculiar cosmetic containers found generally between Egypt and the northern Levant. To date, this category of artefacts has received scant scientific attention, partly because most known specimens come from museum collections or poorly-stratified contexts. The "kohl box" from Tepebag Hoyuk is notable not only because it is well-dated (15th-3th centuries BCE), but also because it is the earliest known example from Anatolia.
