abstract

The purpose of this article is to make a re-evaluation of the site of Taštepe-1 and to introduce a newly discovered site called Taštepe-2. These are located on the southern shore of Lake Orumiyeh in Iran. Taštepe-1 consisted of a small outpost and a settlement. The most important feature is the Urartian inscription by King Minua. Taštepe-2 is a settlement. The archaeology of both sites is discussed, as is the presentation of pottery collected from the surface. Finally, the sites are discussed from the perspective of the historical events that characterised part of the first half of the first millennium BCE, i.e. the war between Urartu and Mannea.
