As time progressed, though, and scholars came to know more about the geography of ancient Anatolia, the map was filled in. There wasn't really room for a place called Ahhiyawa on the Anatolian mainland. And so the idea that it was actually a part of Greece returned, and now seems to be largely accepted by the specialists.
This book is an edition of all the Hittite texts that refer to Ahhiyawa, whether letters, royal propaganda, or oracle reports. The texts are given in both transliterated Hittite and English translation, and each has a brief introduction and following commentary. It's a very small corpus, but an intriguing one.Read more ›
The present book contains even some recently unearthed -or discovered- finds.
It does not contain "Alaksandu treaty" -referring indirectly through "Tudhaliya II"- to the Assuwan war of this king, war connected possibly to Ahhiyawa. Besides it does not include either the inscription on Hattusa'a sword or the inscription on the silver bowl now in the Ankara museum "Samaya...".
I think it is an excellent book extremely useful for the scholars of this period and the connections between the people of the Land of Hatti and Ahhiyawa, writen by three devoted scholars in this sector. Moreover it contains an extremely illuminating introduction and epilogue.
