On the left scene the king (PUGNUS-mili) is offering libation and an animal to the god Sarruma, the Mountain-King. On the right a princess (?) named Tuwati is shown in a similar scene, making offerings to the goddess Sauska, who is shown standing on two birds. Both limestone reliefs are part of the Lion Gate and dated to the 9th century BCE, but arguments towards an earlier dating also exist. Anatolian Civilizations Museum in Ankara.
