This article examines the importance of the Sun deity of the hilammar in the Luwian pantheons. This deity is mentioned in the Lallupiya-Itanuwa festival texts, as well as in the Amarna Letter VBoT 2 sent by the King of Arzawa to the Pharaoh. As he is shared at least by two distinct Luwian religious spheres, we suggest that the Sun deity of the hilammar is an important 'pan-Luwian' deity.
