Stele Fragment

The fragment shows the head of a female, dressed very similarly to the figures attested on another stele from Kahramanmaraş. Behind her head is the first couple of signs of an inscription, which probably identified the owner of the stele (za-wa/i, "This (is) [...]"). Fragment is about 38 cm high and 66 cm wide, and was found during excavations at the foot of the Maraş citadel. Currently on display at Kahramanmaraş Museum.
