A tell known today as "Yumuktepe" is located at modern Mersin in Turkey. Excavations there, beginning in the 20th century, have provided evidence for continuous and/or successive human settlement beginning in the Neolithic period. Scholars believe that the names "Ingirâ" (found in Akkadian sources) and "Anchiale(ia)" (found in Greco-Roman sources) are to be associated with the site.
