Kadembas (Katepants) is a modern settlement in the Van Province in the Southeast of Turkey. Here several rock inscriptions of the Urartian king Minua (9th / 8th century BCE) were found which report the construction of the “Canal of Minua” which is still in use today. Furthermore a rock inscription of Tariria, wife of Minua, (9th / 8th century BCE) is located here which attributes a vineyard to her belongings.
