Inscribed boulder (BOĞAZKÖY 8)

The limestone block with the hieroglyphic graffiti which records the names of two scribes was found in 1956 in a wall near the Great Temple. The names are read as Patisina and Samituli, both followed by the "scribe" title. The block is on display at Boğazkale Museum.
