Many stone blocks with the cross carved on them have been found in Armenia and Turkey. They had been inscribed with cuneiform inscriptions, especially Urartian. Some are being studied so far but no similar inscription has been found in Iran. Recently, a badly damaged cuneiform inscription with a cross on it is found in Maku being studied by the authors. The right side of the block is the end of a cuneiform inscription and the left side is broken in order to be reused. Therefore, the inscription is not complete and has a half or parts not being found yet. The obverse with a cross carved on it in an unknown period is Assyrian and only some signs have been left. There is only one sign left on the reverse. The epigraphy of the inscription shows that this inscription is written by Urartians between 800 and 700 B.C. This inscription is introduced in this paper and its epigraphy is studied and it is compared to the similar ones.
