Tushpuea is an Araratian (Urartian) Goddess from which the city of Tushpa derived its name. She may have been the wife of the Solar God Shivini as both are listed as third, in the list of male and female deities on the Mheri-Dur inscription.
8th century BC city of Gurgum was the capital of a neo-Hittite kingdom in southeast Anatolia, and a center for the production of stelae with Hittite hieroglyphs. Depicted is the young Tarhunpiyas standing on his mother's knees, holding a stylus and the leash to his hawk. A writing tablet is placed before him, above his mother's head.
