Tilsevet Funerary Stele

Basalt funerary stele with a three-line Hieroglyphic Luwian inscription. The 1.6 meter high stele has been found in 1955 in the possession of a peasant in the village of Ekinveren (previously know as Tilsevet), southeast of the city of Gaziantep. It may have come from an ancient grave-yard south of the village. The inscription is a funaerary dedication for a person named Uwawas. Currently in Gaziantep Museum.
