About 800 BCE, a letter from Adad-nirari III, the Neo-Assyrian king, was addressed to a governor of Naṣibina, for he could make the messenger to the governor of Guzana, who was even more to the west . Phonetics made it possible to recognize the present Nusaybin, to the south of present-day Turkey.

It is probably the city called "Nazabia" in a list of kings / cities of the land of Nairi conquered by Tiglath-Pileser I, during the 11th century BCE.

This city seems to have gained in number of inhabitants until the Roman period: in the time of Lucullus, Nazabina or Nisibis, was the most important city of Mesopotamia.

My notes of veracity :

Nazabia, Naṣibina was the modern Nusaybin: 4/5
