Niphururiria again

Dear Tory, Jared MILLER, Hittitologist, in his Amarna Age Chronology and the Identity of Nibḫururiya in the Light of a Newly Reconstructed Hittite Text , Altorientalische Forschungen 34 (2007) 2, p. 252293, apparently consider that /-ib/ and /-ip/ in nib/nip are only modern variants in spelling for the SAME GRAPHEM in Akkadian.

p. 263, n. 50 (dealing with the Hittite source) : mNi-ib-ḫu-ru-ri-ia-a in KBo 14.12 iv 18, mBi!-ib-ḫu-ru-ri-ia-a in KBo 5.6 iii 7 .
p. 264, n. 53 : As shall be argued presently, the spelling Nibḫurririya in EA 9 should be added to the list of variants for Akhenaten ,

but . . .

p. 265 that EA 9, addressed to one Ni-ip-ḫu-ur-ri-ri-ia, was also intended for Akhenaten .


Regards,
Marc

        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 Tory, Only few books available on my desk, however, concerning EA 9,1 : Moran gives NiBḫurrereya, but Knudtzon I, p. 88, gives ni-ip-ḫu-ur-ri-ri-ia, R.S. Hess, Amarna Personal Names, ... more

        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
