Stele fragment

The basalt stele fragment shows on the left a partially visible seated bearded male figure holding a cup in one hand and a cane in the other. In front of him is a younger person. His shoulder is held by an arm which apparently belongs to a broken off figure originally seated accross. The fragment is about 24 cm high and 42 cm wide. It was reportedly acquired in Maraş in 1880s by Col. Lundqvist who was an atache in Russian consulate in Aleppo and subsequently transferred to Tbilisi, Georgia. It is currently in Simon Janashia Museum of Georgia.
