Tell es-Sweyhat or Sweyhat refers to an ancient settlement mound or tell located along the Euphrates river in what is now the Raqqa Governorate of northern Syria. This human settlement was occupied from the beginning of the third millennium BCE until its collapse in the early second millennium BCE. The site remained occupied during the Early Bronze-Middle Bronze age transition. There is later reoccupation of the site during the Hellenistic and late Roman periods.
