For example, “These are the words of the Sun Mursilis, the great king, king of the Hatti land, the valiant, the favorite of the Storm-god, the son Suppiluliumas … When your father died, in accordance with your father’s word I did not drop you. Since your father had mentioned to me your name with great praise, I sought after you To be sure, you were sick and ailing, but although you were ailing, I, the Sun put you in the place of your father and took your brothers (and) sisters and the Amurru land in oath for you.” James B.
