|Statue of a ruler Basalt statue was found outside the souther wall of the Hilani building reused in a roman era wall. It is about 80 cm in height. Of the missing head only a piece of the beard falling on the chest is visible. There was a cuneiform inscription on the lower front of the garment and on the back, but it seems to have been deliberately effaced and all that remains are a few characters. This is also the only monumental cuneiform inscription found in Karkamis. A date in late 9th century BCE has been suggested. The statue is currently in Anatolian Civilizations Museum in Ankara.|
