The object has been found in a pit along with, among other finds, a late bronze age ceramic moon idol. On the front of the stele, an yet undeciphered symbol has been pecked into the rock, an artifical groove marks the head of the stele. The rock has been dressed into shape, especially around the right “shoulder”.
