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