The basalt block with 3 lines of hieroglyphic Luwian inscription on two faces was found in the village of Eğriköy (later renamed to Yeşilova) in the Kayseri province, which is very close to Çiftlik . The phrase "... Tatuhapa, servant of Tarhunza, beloved of the gods" is read in the first line. The block is about 43 cm in height and 23 cm in width and it is currently on display in Kayseri Museum.
