Both blocks display offering scenes. On the right one the right king (PUGNUS-mili) is offering libation and an animal to the Storm God of the city (POCULUM-ta). On the second orthostat, he is making offerings to the Storm God of Malizi. In both orthostats god and king names are written both in relief and incised forms. Both limestone reliefs are part of the Lion Gate. They are dated to the 9th century BCE, but arguments towards an earlier dating also exist. Currently in Anatolian Civilizations Museum in Ankara.
