Milyan, also known as Lycian B and previously Lycian 2, is an ancient Anatolian language formerly regarded as a variety of Lycian, but now accorded status as a separate language. It is attested from two inscriptions, one of 45 syllables on the Xanthus Stele, and the other, shorter, from a sarcophagus at Antiphellus. The Xanthus inscription is in verse, with strophes marked off by the use of ⟨)⟩.
