Stele

It is one of two limestone steles which were confiscated in 1962 from a local person in Maraş and said to have been found in the Yörükselim district of the city. It shows another typical dining scene. Between the male and female couple is a child, making it complete as a family scene. It is about 60 cm in height and 85 cm in width and may date to the 9th century BCE. It is currently on display in Kahramanmaraş Museum.
