Dokuztay Rock Inscription

In 2023 a Hieroglyphic Luwian inscription carved on the rock surface was discovered near the Dokuztay village in the Afşin province of Kahramanmaraş. Its paleography and geographical location suggests a late date and an association with the inscriptions of the Neo-Hittite kingdom of the Malizi (Malatya).
