We would like to thank the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkey for its support and the permit for our archaeological work at Hirbemerdon Tepe. Moreover, the project was jointly planned with Necdet Inal (Director of the Museum of Diyarbakir) as part of the Ilisu dam project, and to him goes our warmest acknowledgment.

Our special acknowledgments for the success of our archaeological work at Hirbemerdon Tepe go also to the Italian Embassy of Ankara and to the Consulate of Izmir, to the Istituto Italiano per l'Africa e per l'Oriente and Professor Gherardo Gnoli, to 7. Kolordu Komutanligi Diyarbakir, to Emniyet Genel Mudurlugu Yabancilar Subesi, to Dr. P. Pugsley, to the people of Ahmetli, where we were based, and, most of all, to all the workmen without whom this project would not be possible.

But, our deepest acknowledgments go to Bradley Parker, Director of the UTARP. Without his incredible logistical and scientific support the third season (2005) would not have been possible.

The archaeological work at Hirbemerdon Tepe was generously supported financially by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Istituto Italiano per l'Africa e per l'Oriente, The Curtiss T. and Mary G. Brennan Foundation, Grand Valley State University, the CNR and private donors.
