The Hittite rock sanctuary of Yazilikaya in central Anatolia contains over ninety
rock-cut reliefs of deities, humans, animals, and mythical figures dating to the second half of
the 13th century B.C. The site’s function has thus far remained enigmatic. We suggest that the reliefs in Chamber A are arranged in groups for the purpose of keeping track of lunar months, the days of a lunar month, and years.
