This rock-relief lies on the cliff side of mountain Rabana. The mountain looks over the modern village of Qarachatan, Sulaymaniyah Governorate, Iraqi Kurdistan. The relief is about 4 km away from a very similar rock-relief, the relief of Merquli (http://www.ancient.eu/image/2044/ ), which lies on the top of the mountain Pira Magroon. The relief depicts a man in Parthian royal dress facing towards a nearby valley.
