There are, see Mitchell's Anatolia on this.

Is it really that they got that letter? I seem to remember that they
only asked Massalia for such a favour, not that they really got any
response and that this had any effects.
As far as I can say, it is currently most often assumed that the long
distance contacts were at best rare, at worst nonexistant (even though I
personally wouldn't be that sure about that). Anyways, at least in
regard to material culture, there seems to have been little if any
