Gerçin is a rocky hill about 7 km northeast of Zincirli Höyük. It is suspected that Gerçin hill was a cemetery for the royal family of the Sam'al kingdom, but so far it has not been officially excavated. Other than the statues below, Felix von Luschan reported finding three smaller statues in Gerçin, although all heavily damaged and missing heads and legs. These fragments are probably in the inventory of Istanbul Archaeology Museum.
