A multi ethnic population of Hittites, Assyrians, Egyptians, and North -West Semitic speaking natives inhabited this port of call situated in the middle Euphrates on the frontier of the Hittite province of Syria, facing Babylonia to the south-east and Assyria to the north-east. It flourished during the last days of the hegemonic power system that was broken by the inroads of the Aramaeans, the Israelites, the Sea People and the rise of the Phoenician city states in the 12th century BC. The tablets published here are in a variety of languages and cover the full range of types of documents found from rituals and cultic inventories to legal douments and payment lists.
