Basalt relief fragment dating from about 850-750 BCE. Anatolian Civilizations Museum, Ankara. The goddess Hepat of the Hittite imperial times, is transformed into Kubaba in Neo-Hittite kingdoms of the south eastern Anatolia. She is holding a pomegrenate in her right hand, and an ear of wheat in her left.

The relief on the Long Wall has been reconstructed from the lower part fragment shown on the small image.
