Marianne says:
Look, these are writing mistakes on the part of foreigners--but there is no one that could possibly match except nb-xprw-re Tutankhamun.

But Marianne, by the same token you deny any possible derivation of Rathotis from [Me]ritaten, while the Greeks are also just plain foreigners who make these kind of writing mistakes. You hardheadidly insist that Rathotis is and must be Tutankhamun but there is not the slightest possibility the name Tutankhamun or even his prenomen Nebkheperure could ever have become Rathotis.

              Dear Marc I would still want to see the Akkadian text of EA 9. NIP and NIB are not written exactly the same way in Akkadian cuneiform. That is not true. Miller is probably making small errors here.... more

                Dear Tory, I must add that the index of Bezold & Budge, p. 154, gives : Ni-ip-ḫu-ur-ri-ri-ya for the royal name on tablet Bezold & Budge n░ 2, 1 (EA 9, 1). Regards

                  Hi Marc Thank you for these links. I must say, archive.org is a wonderful online resource. I'm now searching it for A. Ungnad's article "Eponymen" in RlA 2 (1938) but it does not seem that... more

                    Thanks Tory for explainations. So Nip- or Nib- ? for EA 9. As you may suspect, I disagree concerning your identification of Niphururia. Regards Marc

              Dear Marc Well it cannot be both NIB and NIP in EA 9, so I would very much like to know who is telling the truth. I would know who if I had access to the cuneiform text. Maybe someone does and can... more
