ABSTRACT
Being an inherent component of our history and culture, abjad numerological system has been employed for artistic purposes, but today it has started to sink into oblivion. The abjad numerological system was mostly employed to pinpoint dates of death of certain people in a artistic manner in tombstone inscriptions. This practice was very popular in Anatolia so that such tombstone inscriptions can readily be found throughout Anatolia. In this paper, we investigated the tombstones in Kökçüoğlu Central Graveyard in Samsun and gave examples of the tombstones with such inscriptions.
