Abstract

Understanding the various historical and cultural phenomena in Anatolia requires a broad set of methodologies and perspectives. An exemplary case is western Anatolian under the Achaemenid Persian Empire (approx. mid 6th century - 330s BC), a period of complex interplay of different political and cultural spheres. This article investigates the case of Lycia, a region that has clearly defined features thanks to the wealth of material evidence between the 6th and 4th centuries BC. Recent growing interest in this region, as well as traditional disciplines merging with innovative methodologies, has enhanced our knowledge of Lycia. After briefly contextualizing the role of Lycia in Anatolian studies, the article aims to outline some recent research trends on this region and suggests ideas about possible new trajectories that can be productively explored for western Anatolia as well.
