In the archives of Mari, the tablet II62 writed by Haya-Sumu, King of Ilan-Sura, evokes the liberation of Suhpad and Mazudum but also of the city of Tilla.

1000 years later, during the reign of Ashurnasirpal II, the country of Kadmuhu was annexed to Assyria, and from this former country, two new areas were created around Tille and Shahuppa or Sahuppa. Some Sahuppa governors appear in various other neo-Assyrian texts : it was an important town.

This name is the origin of the country of "Shupria" ? This region is mentioned during the 13th century BC as the reduced country which remained to Shattuara king of Mitanni, after his defeat by Adad-Nirari I and also in 672 BC as having been defeated by Esarhaddon who also shaved its capital : Uppume.

Furthermore, Sennacherib inscriptions have been found to the villages of Sah (or Shakh) and Hasanna in present Cudi mountain. They evoke Mount Nipur, which today is recognized to be the present Cudi Dagi.

Here is an old photograph kept by the Christian diaspora:

In the annals of Sennacherib appears the Mount Nipur, then the Anara Mountains (a Mount which can be the Zinar) and Uppa where is the town of Ukku.

Sahuppa has been constituted by the juxtaposition of "Sah" and "Uppa"?

"Shahuppa" has been transformed into "Shalupa", "Solop" mentioned by Moses of Khoren during the first century AD, and finaly Silopi?





My notes of veracity :

Suhpad was the Neo-Assyrian Sahuppa: 3/5
