Tombstones and votive monuments depicting vines and pruning-hooks are widely distributed across Phrygia and Galatia, suggesting that the vine was far more widely cultivated in inner Anatolia in antiquity than it is today: see Waelkens 1977: 278-83; Mitchell 1993: I 146-7. See also MAMA XI 19 (1956/102).
