In this paper, we will discuss some linguistic evidence that seems to point to an occasional alternation between /l/ and /r/ in Lycian. Particularly, we will focus on the correspondence between the Lycian toponym Pinale and its Greek equivalent Πίναρα, which shows an interchange between /l/ in Lycian and /r/ in Greek. Because such an interchange is lacking elsewhere, different explanations will be suggested and evaluated, also taking into account other languages of Anatolia and possible language contact scenarios.
