During the archaeological excavations near the ancient city of Ephesus, a 3,200-year-old Mycenaean statuette was found. This new discovery could change the perspective of the Hittite, Aegean, and Greek Islands’ relations during the Bronze Age. The statue in question is 5 centimeters high and wide, and it does not have a head or feet. The Mycenaean figurine is dated between 1200 and 1700 BC. The Mycenaean figure has shown that there was a strong Bronze Age settlement here. This evidence shows us that the history of the ancient city of Ephesus dates back much earlier than the Hellenic culture.
