Stele fragment

Bottom part of a monumental stele, possibly intended to be in the shape of a grinding stone, dedicated for a granary. Found near İskenderun but the Hieroglyphic Luwian inscription mentions the name of Laramas (II) of Gurgum (Maraş) from late 9th cent BCE. Currently in Istanbul Archeology Museum.
