This brief contribution introduces a palimpsest of some main markers of the Karian imagery which are traceable in their homeland and abroad, in the light of the archaeological and scriptural background, dating back far as the Archaic period. As it seems, although they seem to be sunk into oblivion together with their language, these ancient and humble people, about whom we still know little, referred to permanent methods and achieved concise works (also supportable with evidence from the Khersonesos equated with Bozburun Peninsula) to show forth their distinguished identity.
