The orthostats in the Ankara Museum | The Inandik vase

The orthostats in the Ankara Museum

I decided to give the many orthostats (large stones set upright) in the Ankara Anatolian Civilizations Museum a gallery of their own. They are on display in an inner (huge) room, most visitors hardly pay it attention but keep to the rooms surrounding it. Most are from Hittite sources. I combine older pictures, that often have captions already, with June 2011 ones, that often haven't. I must rearrange the whole.

The 2011 pictures have much more colour, in older pictures I went for clarity and detail, the newer ones are truer to the originals.
