Storm God stele

The basalt stele has on its rather damaged front side a Storm God figure who is holding a trident shaped thunderbolt in his left hand an axe in his right hand. There is a winged sun disk at the top. On the left side of the stele is a beardless man or perhaps a female figure, and on the back side is a Roman era inscription. Currently in the Kahramanmaraş Museum.
