Turkey, late 12th century - text glorifying sultan over image

“Stucco relief from Ravvy, late 12th century. It depicts enthronement Saljuq sultan Tughril surrounded by his officers. Directly beneath his feet is written ‘the victorious, just king’ and in the panel above are his title, interrupted atypically by the sultan’s personal name placed directly over his head”
Source of this image and text has been lost, sorry.
