Calligraphers started to put their signatures at the bottom of their inscriptions on the tombstones at the end period of Ottomans. This new situation can be explained by stating that they began considering tombstones as proper spaces for their artistic endeavor. There is an inscription on a tombstone, which has a signature of its calligrapher, in Samsun Kökçüoğlu Central Graveyard. This paper aims at describing this inscription by giving some information on its calligrapher.
