As a result of the dissolution of the Hittite Empire there emerged in the southern and
south-eastern parts of Anatolia a great number of small Hittite states which developed,
during the 9th and 8th centuries BC, a Neo-Hittite culture strongly influenced and
modified by the Assyrian, Aramaean and Phoenician civilizations. The art and architecture
of the Neo-Hittite states had a profound effect on Greek and Etruscan centers of the 8th
and 7th centuries.
