The inscription was found by Aspelin in 1888 on the left bank of the river Uyuk, about two kilometres away from the riverbed, in the vicinity of a kurgan (burial mound) called Arzhan. The stone was transported to the Minusinsk Museum of Regional History in 1916 and catalogued under the number 21. It measures 215 x 41 centimetres.

Comments

  1. There is most likely a proper name behind the letter combination <ïKŝK> which cannot be interpreted unequivocally. Possible readings might be qïšïqbaš, qïšqabaš or qïšaqbaš. Batmanov, Kunaa (1963: 12) read <YŝK> yaš aq baš.
