The tablets of Kanesh evoke the country of Tahruwa and its proximity with Kuburnat and with the "narrow track" or the "sukinnu-route."

For example an order for a merchant traveler is a wool reception in the Tahruwa country and payment of the sales representative to Kuburnat for this wool. The performer did not find the representative in Kuburnat (in fact he stayed permanently in the land of Tahruwa), he asked to return to the country of Tahruwa and write a tablet for Kuburnat to report changes of place of payment.

The country of Tahruwa was therefore just before the alternative pathway called the "narrow track" or "sukinnu-road" while Kuburnat was just after.

I am convinced that, in the Iliad, the "Doors Scaean" of the city of Troy is a memory of that old denomination, which has also given the country of the Seha River.

In the Hittite texts, in addition of the Taruisa and Wilusiya places identified early by specialists, I think the city is also mentioned as the place name "Tarukka" in KUB XVII 21 which lists the cities devastated by Gasgas under Arnuwanda: Tarukka is beside Ilaluha, what appears to be a second spell of Ilion.

The site of Hissarlik or Hisarlik, on a hill located in the present province of Çanakkale in Turkey, is the ruin of the ancient Troy. It is closely associated with the seven excavations of Heinrich Schliemann in the late 19th century.

The excavators of this site have found that the city had prospered through the maritime trade of bronze.







My notes of veracity :

4,000 years ago, the site of Hissarlik was the ancient city of Troy spelled Tahruwa in the archives of Kanesh: 3/5

3,500 years ago, the site of Hissarlik was the ancient city of Troy spelled Tarukka or Taruisa in the archives of Hattusa: 3/5
