The five fragmentary cuneiform tablets from the Hittite (Imperial) Period unearthed in Boğazköy have been kept at Kayseri Archaeology Museum since 1932. Of these (Kayseri 285-ABoT 63=) ABoT 1.63 belongs to “Muršili II Annals” and was published in 1948. In this study, two “Celebration/Festival Ritual” texts (Kay.286, Kay.287) have been discussed and presented with philological evaluations, among the four unpublished fragments. Both fragments have religious content similar to the most of the other tablets unearthed from Boğazköy.
