Title: Who was Huwa-Surruma, King of Karkemiš?
Author(s): SIMON, Zsolt
Volume: 47 Date: 2021
Huwa-Sarruma, king of Karkamiš mentioned in the Hieroglyphic Luwian inscription KARKAMIŠ A18d is usually dated to the Iron Age, although this is historically problematic. This paper critically discusses the possibilities and argues that an identification with […]-Šarruma, Hittite viceroy of Karkamiš, son of Šarri-Kušuḫ (cautiously proposed already by R. Barnett in 1952, but subsequently neglected in the research) is the most probable one.
