Kavuncu is a modern settlement situated near Van in the southeast of Turkey. Here a cylindrical stone (probably a column base) with an inscription of the Urartian king Minua, son of Išpuini (9/8th century BCE) was found (CTU I A 5-53 B).

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
