The exploration of Turkey's manholes was confined to the European part of the country and this and lack of familiarity with the Turkish language has meant that the full range of manhole covers has not been tackled. Inscriptions relating to the local municipality have been noted but generally there does not appear to be a great deal to interest the operculist from the point of view of design. Covers in this page have been arranged by the place in which they were seen rather than by the place of production. Diacriticals have not been inserted in the transcriptions.
