The Urartu State, an ancient nation that lived in Eastern Anatolia, was ruling in the area extending from the Caspian Sea to Malatya in its heyday (9th century BC). The northern borders of the state, whose capital was Tuspa (Van), extended to Erzurum and Erzincan, and the southern borders to Mosul and Aleppo.
Urartu BC. They lived as one of the biggest states of the Near East until the 8th century. In the middle of this century, the Cimmerian and Îskit raids were shaken and squeezed into the mountainous regions, after the skit invasion and the disappearance of the Assyrian State in the 7th century, when the Medes captured Anatolia, the Urartu State, BC. It ended in 600 years. As can be understood from the inscriptions that have survived, the Urartu kings built castles, palaces and water channels in the capital Tuspa and other cities. Metalware, pots and pans, stones, ceramics and various artifacts unearthed during the excavations show that the Urartu State is at an advanced level in terms of architecture, art and technique.
Urartu Sarcophagus Vase, exhibited in the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, BC. It was inspired by a sarcophagus belonging to the Urartu, dated to the 7th century. The scene of the encounter between Haldi and Teişeba, the two most important gods of the Urartu, is depicted on the vase.
The Urartu Sarcophagus Vase is made of handmade cream opal glass, all of the relief patterns on it are handcrafted and decorated using gold gilding and antique paints.
