The Hittite text KUB XX 52 described a procession in Kizzuwatna through the towns of Zunnahara, Adaniya, Tarsa and Ellipra.

In other texts, Alluprata or Allubrata appears as border city of the country of Tarhuntassa, towards Walma.

In the archives of Ugarit, it is called Abratu or Apratu.

In the Neo Assyrian archives, it would be identified by the name of Illubru. In 696, Sennacherib of Assyria had erected symbols in the rebellious city of Illubru dependent of Hilakku.


Phonetically, Lampron is the spelling that is closest of the denominations coming from Ugarit and Hattusa. The coastal river of Lipari got its name from this town. Upstream, on a naturally fortified place, with the borders are impassable cliffs, stands a Byzantine fortress. Many traces of fossil occupations adorn the walls and show that the site was already occupied a long time ago.





My notes of veracity :

During the 2nd millennium BC, Alluprata, Allubrata or Ellipra were different Hittite names of the fortress of Lampron: 3/5

During the 2nd millennium BC, Abratu of Apratu was the Ugarit name of the fortress of Lampron: 3/5

During the first millennium BC, Illubru was the Assyrian name of the fortress of Lampron: 3/5
