Proposed shape of Eflatunpınar Monument

James Mellaart proposes that the Fasıllar monument which is found in unfinished shape about 50 km to Eflatunpınar was actually meant to be a part of the Eflatunpınar monument. Some fragmental pieces of leopards (as opposed to lions, Mellaart claims) similar to the base of Fasıllar monument were found nearby Eflatunpınar monument. He believes those were belong to the base of a second statue of a goddess as shown below. Akurgal agrees with the proposal (E. Akurgal, Hattian and Hittite Civilizations), however that is still strongly argued by others.
