Nişantaş (stone with writing) is the name for this writing in Luwian (extinct Indo-European language primarily of the southern part of ancient Anatolia. It was closely related to Hittite, Palaic, and Lydian and was a forerunner of the Lycian language), on an smoothed rock, 8,5 meters widee and 11 lines in all it probably describes, in only partly deciphered words, the deeds of the last Hittite king to reign over Hattuşaş, Şuppiluliuma II. The writing is at the foot of a Nişantepe (hill with writing)..

Hattuşaş was the capital of the Hittite empire from 2000 to 1180 BC. The site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1986
