Hittite Hieroglyphic panel from a cult chamber 2 built by Suppiiuliuma II in Hattusa, Hittite New Kingdom  1207–1178 BC, Bogazkale archaeological Museum, Turkey.

The Luwian hieroglyphics is a kind of hieratic script which was developed in Anatolia and has no relationship to Egyptian hieroglyphics. In these panels King Suppiluliuma II mentions that by the support of many gods he has conquered many countries including the Land of Tarhuntassa, where he has built new cities and has offered sacrifices to the gods. The chamber may have been a symbolic entrance to the underworld which plays an important part in Hittite cult and beliefs
