Are you trying to say that "Piphurrias" is a reference to Amenhotep III?

I believe I was crystal clear. None of the examples we have for "Nb" in the throne name of Amenhotep III ever become Pip in Akkadian. So /Pip/ was not how Amenhotep III's prenomen was written in Akkadian, not once in numerous examples. Why is this so hard to understand?

I gave you the example of "Binothris" for "Ny-nTr", which proves you wrong in your assertion that a labial and a nasal could never be substituted for one another.

I said the /n/ of "Nb" never becomes /p/ in ANY of the examples we have of nb-maAt-ra in Akkadian. Do you ever see Pi-ip-mureya in the Amarna letters? No. So stop telling me it happened in other names and therefore could happen with "Nb" when in fact it never happened with "Nb". It NEVER happens. Period.
