The limestone stele displays a seated man in front of a table holding a staff in his right hand and a stalk of wheat and bunch of grapes in his left hand. The stele is about 61 cm high and 31 cm wide. Stylistically it may be dated roughly to the 9th century BCE. Currently on display in the Adana Museum.
