This relief is of Hittite King Muwatalli II ( reigned c 1290-1270 BC ), with an inscription to the right. Sited at the ancient mound of Sirkeli Höyük, next to the Ceyhan River, a short distance downstream from Sirkeli village.
The site is overlooked by the fortress of Yılan Kalesi to the north.

The sun needs be at the right angle to get the best photo. We were late.
