Two inscribed basalt blocks were originally from a gateway, but were found as reused lying face down at the threshold of the King's Gate. The inscription (KARKAMI A11b+c) belongs to ruler Katuwa and talks about the revolt and recovery of Karkamış, conquests, and construction of "upper floors." Dates to the 10th-9th century BCE and on display in the Anatolian Civilizations Museum in Ankara.
