'King's Gate in Hattusha.'

	A warrior god adorns one of the giant slabs that form the King's Gate in the eastern city wall off Hattusha, the Hittite capital situated near the village of Bogazköy (north of Yozgat). The gate, dating from the 14th century BC, was constructed in the form of a pointed arch, the upper part of which is now lost. The relief with the god is a replica; the original is kept in the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations in Ankara. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
