In the summer of 2019, a team of archeologists were mapping Türkmen-Karahöyük, a Bronze and Iron Age settlement in the Middle East from around 3500 and 100 B.C. They were approached by a local farmer who pointed them towards a stone he had spotted with unusual inscriptions. It turns out that the stone contained a message from King Hartapu, king of Türkmen-Karahöyük from the Iron Age. Written in the language of Luwian using hieroglyphics, the stone reads, “The storm gods delivered the [opposing] kings to his majesty.” Its tale is about King Hartapu’s defeat of Muska, home to King Midas. This important find finally solved the mystery of King Hartapu’s identity.
