Seyitömer Höyük

Kütahya, Turkey

Hellenistic Period

 page updated June 13, 2011

At Seyitömer, the Hellenistic occupation (c.334-30 BCE) seems to have spread across the top of the mound and been enclosed by a fortification wall. Two phases have been detected, called the Early and Late Phases. The full extent of the settlement is still under investigation.

Learning Sites first tasks consisted of working with the CAD plans created at the site as the basis for building our 3D models of the mound and Hellenistic architecture.

Using photographs taken to our specifications, we textured the walls and began to re-create the excavations as a 3D document of the work, as a visualization to allow better understanding of the village, and as a prelude to publication.

As we continue to map on excavation photographs and analyze the site plans, individual houses are beginning to come into shaper focus. One especially large house was uncovered near the top of the mound.
