Abstract

This short contribution focuses on three examples of Early Bronze Age so-called »sistra« or »ceremonial standards«. A critical reappraisal of the published information about the settlement/cemetery of Horoztepe in Northern Central Anatolia yielded the following result: The sistra with handle and spherical bottom allegedly from »Horoztepe« do not come from the 1957 rescue excavation, but were confiscated by the Antiques Service and most likely found in the vicinity of Nallihan near modern Bolu. Only a single »standard« resembling a well-known type from Alaca Höyük can be associated with the findspot Horoztepe. Finally, the type of handle attachment for these objects is discussed.
