The built and elaborately painted chamber tomb at Kizilbel in Northern Lycia, Turkey, had been robbed in ancient and modern times before the archaeological team from Bryn Mawr College began rescue excavations in 1969, but the excavations still yielded some spectacular results. This volume reports on the excavation of the tumulus and tomb, and describes in detail the architecture of the tomb and the paintings within it. Dated to the 6th century BC, the wall and floor paintings contain many "East-Greek" features, in the style of painting and in the costume and equipment of the human figures, while the iconography appears to make reference to both Greek and local Anatolian mythology. Two short appendices discuss the restoration and conservation of the paintings, and the skeletal remains from the tomb.
