A Byzantine-era stone tablet has been found during road construction in the Central Anatolian province of Karaman's Ermenek district.

Discovered in the field of farmer Ali Boztoprak, the tablet features a Greek message that says: "Hello, friend. May you receive twice that of which you wish for me," as well as the words "proastion - topothesia." The tablet was delivered to museum officials for examination.

"The inscription is an address and starts with a familiar prayer that is also said today," said Karamanoğlu Mehmet Bey University Classical Archaeology Department academic Mehmet Alkan.
