The Hieroglyphic Luwian inscriptions of the Iron Age contain sparse but substantial information regarding several aspects of the socio-economic structure of the so-called Neo-Hittite states, such as royal, official and professional titles, nouns of measures, records of local adiminstrative activities and of private or semi-private trades. The goal of the present work is to present and examine this epigraphic documentation and to extrapolate, with a philological, historical and linguistic approach, the data pertaining to a socio-economic history of the Iron Age Luwian kingdoms of Syria and Anatolia.
