'Looking out over Commagene.'

	On the southern slopes of the Taurus mountain range, near the village of Damlacik (east of Adiyaman), a shepherd boy is looking out over a lateral valley of the Euphrates which, in the first century BC, was part of the Commagene kingdom. Not far from here lie the ruins of its capital Arsameia and the famous mountaintop tomb of Nemrud Dag. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
