Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Wednesday, 4 April 2018 is Üçgöz, Besni.
Üçgöz (formerly known as Sofraz or Sofrazköy) is a village in the District of Besni, Adıyaman Province, Turkey.
The village lies about 10 kilometres southeast of the district capital and 30 kilometres southwest of the provincial capital Adıyaman. South of the village flows the Sofraz Çayı (also called the Değirmen Çayı), a tributary of the Göksu.
South of the village is an ancient settlement of Hellenistic and Roman date (based on archaeological finds). In this area, a stele was found in 1973, which shows Antiochus I of Commagene and Apollo shaking hands. Another find was a funerary altar with a relief carving of a griffin on a wheel and an inscription in which the genealogy of a noble Commagenian family is described. The altar is now on display in the Adıyaman Archaeological Museum. Near the settlement are the two Tumuli of Sofraz, which contain Roman chamber tombs.
