Çapalı

Basalt stele was found in secondary context near the Çapalı village south of Gaziantep. It depicts a dining scene which is commonly encountered in Neo-Hittite art. Due to erosion details of the relief is no longer visible. In front of a seated male figure is a person waving a palm(?) leaf, which is comparable to scenes from Zincirli and Karatepe. Stele is currently in Gaziantep Museum.
