Bor Stele is also known as Warpalawa Stele after the king who is depicted on it. It was recorded for the first time in Bor but was said to be originally found in 1860 during the excavations for a house construction in Kemerhisar in Niğde. The stele was in two piece and restored to one, however scholars believe the restoration to be incorrect as it has given too much space in between the two pieces. Suggested correct shape is shown in Hawkins' picture and drawing below, which puts the stele at about 2 meters in height. The stele shows King Warpalawa of Tuwana in prayer, similar to the scene in Ivriz. Warpalawas name also appears in Bulgarmaden inscription. This stele is dated to mid 8th century BCE.
The inscription (J. D. Hawkins):
In 2012 another stele was found in a farm field at the Bağdüz district of Bor. It is about 2.35 meters high and 1 meter wide, and bears a rather damaged five-line hieroglyphic Luwian inscription on its side. It is on display at Niğde Museum.
