Inscribed Stele Base (BOĞAZKÖY 2)

The limestone block was found in 1907 during the construction of the excavation house along with another similar inscribed block. The cavity on the top site indicates that it had served as a stele base. The short inscription on the front also indicates that the stele was dedicated by a palace official named Taprammi. The original stele is on display in the Istanbul Ancient Orient Museum, and Boğazkale Museum has a replica.
