Yoram Cohen, Netanel Anor

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This article is part of an ongoing research about Hittite rule and administration of Northern Syria, which, following the conquests of Šuppiluliuma and his heirs, became part of the Hittite Empire. Here we will consider CTH 50, a diplomatic document that contains a description of the borders of the kingdom of Carchemish under Hittite rule. We will introduce the source, provide an edition, and conclude with a geo-political consideration of the toponyms it mentions.
