Summary

In 2017, a white marble statue of a lion was unearthed during the excavation of a garden wall in Yaka neighborhood, in Datça District of Muğla Province (in ancient Caria). It was added to the inventory of the Marmaris Museum. Due to its location in the territory of Knidos, this lion statue has been called the “Knidos Yaka Lion”. Comparisons were made with sculptures of Western Asia Minor and Continental Greek origin and tomb lion sculptures and reliefs in the archaic and classical sculpture repertoire in order to date and determine the origins and function of the lion statue, which was found without any structure or context. The assessments of the Knidos Yaka Lion have shown that it is of Southwestern Anatolian origin and was probably tomb lion. The stylistic studies dated the lion statue to 500-490 BC. This study also emphasized the relationship between Knidos, Apollo, and Lion as well as other lion statues found in the territory of Knidos.
