The Stele of Kubaba by Kamani and the Kings of Karkemish in the 9th Century BC
MetadataShow full item record
The top part of the famous basalt stele of Kubaba from Karkemish, made by Kamani around 790 BC, was discovered in 2015. This allows for a new discussion of the development of the iconography of the goddess. The stele completes the genealogy of the Karkemish rulers from the 9th century BC and includes the first mention of Sangara in hieroglyphic writing. Thanks to a study of archival materials in the British Museum and the rediscovery of additional stele fragments in the 1911-1920 dig house at the site, the later history of the monument now becomes better known.
