The Northwest Necropolis (fig. 1), one of the three necropolis sites identified at the ancient city of Seleukeia Sidera, lies on the northwest slope of Hisar Tepe settlement. A small portion of this necropolis was excavated by the Isparta Museum in 1993,1 and cleaning, mapping and digital recording of graves were carried out in 2017.2 Burial method at the necropolis is inhumation in two distinct grave types: cist graves carved out of bedrock and chamber tombs carved into the bedrock. Excavations that were initiated under the scientific directorship of Prof. Dr. B. Hürmüzlü with the permission and support of the T.C. Ministry of Culture and Tourism General Directorate of Cultural Assets and Museums continued in 2018. Excavations at the North Necropolis were supported by the Department of Archaeology at Süleyman Demirel University, the Department of Archaeology at the University of Groningen and the Suna & İnan Kıraç Research Center for Mediterranean Civilizations (AKMED) at Koç University. Besides the investigation of funerary rituals at the necropolis of Seleukeia Sidera, objectives of the project include revealing various significant datasets to allow interpretations about mortuary traditions and socio-cultural and economic conditions of the Roman Imperial Period in Pisidia.
