During1995, 6 rectangular tablets in Aramaic were found during excavations of the Tell Shuyukh Fawqani. F. M. Fales read the toponym "Burmarina" on one of them. As a text of the Neo-Assyrian king Salmanasar III also evokes this city towards the Euphrates, this designation was admitted by the community of scientists for the Tell Shuyukh Fawqani.

Archaeological excavations has shown a human occupation of the Tell Shiukh Fawqani since the 4th millennium BC and during the latter part of the Bronze Age (form the 15th to the 12th century BC) during the Hittite rule over this part of Syria .

In the archives of Hattusa, it is the toponym Murmuriga which, phonetically, comes closest to the Neo-Assyrian denomination.

Murmuriga, Sipri, Mazuwatti and Surun were the fortified cities of Carchemish under Suppiluliama.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My notes of veracity :

The Tell Shuyukh Fawqani was called Burmarina during the Iron Age: 3/5

The Tell Shuyukh Fawqani was called Murmuriga during the Bronze Age: 2,5 / 5
