Das Land Tumanna und sein König in den hethitischen Quellen
The article investigates the history of the “Land of Tumanna”, known from Hittite sources, based on a new appraisal of the available evidence. First conquered by ˇSuppiluliuma I, theregion underwent a change of status with the creation of a vassal kingdom in the Late Empire period. By that time, the growing political and economical importance of the king of Tumanna emerges from his role as provider of cult supplies and as eligible commander for military campaigns. The parallel disappearance of the Land of Pala fromthe written sources suggests that the latter territory was largely, if not totally incorporated in the kingdom ofTumanna. Besides the political history of the region, the article addresses the geographical setting of the area and presents a critical edition of the oracle report IBoT 1.32.
