Statue of a ruler
According to the museum label the statue came from Güngörge village of the Şehitkamil township in Gaziantep province. It is made of basalt and shows the lower half of a male person, possibly a ruler. It is roughly in life size. In front of the ankle length robe is a tassel and on the left side of it is a sword that hangs down from the belt. On the right front corner of the robe is a damaged raised line that must be the remains of a staff that was held with the right hand. In respect to such details and general form, it is very similar to the statues of Halparuntiya II and Asatiwasu from Maraş and a ruler statue found in Ain Arab. On that account it may be dated to around 9th century BCE. The statue is on display in the Gaziantep Archaeology Museum.
