Dear Werner, your question : Is there an argument to disprove this order?
Answer is: yes.
It is in part object of my future paper in AoF. The new limu reconstruction was discussed with Llop, who at a certain point said, he wished to see it published, to enable a larger discussion of it. Freydank opinioned - there is too much space for conjectures in any reconstruction of the later limus, an opinion I share.
I offered therefore new readings to the Walker chronicle and to the Chronicle P among others to corroborate my reconstruction of the limu list. I don´t use anymore a reconstruction of the list to corroborate or reconstruct the historical synchronization of Babylon and Assur on its basis - it becomes merely a result of the new general historical outline. BTW it proves that the Böse-Wilhelm synchronization (not necessarily their absolute dates) of the Babylonian and Assyrian chronology is very accurate.
I cannot entirely rule out other possibilities to combine the limu data but the results thereof must survive the general chronological test, something I sincerely doubt. Mine is consistent with the historical outlines.
Hello Michael and all, my preference for the TN eponyms after Assur-zera-iddina is based on the following arguments: - Abi-ili > Salmanu-šuma-usur is certain - Ina-Assur-šumi-asbat is earlier than... more

Hi Michael & all, The Middle Assyrian archive at Tell Huwera is very inferior compared to the extensive one at Tell Seh Hamad. Not a single limu-year should be unrepresented at Tell Seh Hamad from... more
Jaume Llop has drwan my attention to the following: Freydank has proposed in SGKAO 21, 62 that Ninuaju should placed before Abi-ili son of Katiri. In a group of texts, dated with the years of Ninuaju ... more
Hi Michael L. Freydank has proposed in SGKAO 21, 62 that Ninuaju should placed before Abi-ili son of Katiri. That was Freydank way back in 1991. In Freydank's more recent paper "Kar-Tukulti-Ninurta... more
Hi Tory, The sequence in "Kar-Tukulti-Ninurta als Agrarprovinz" in Altoriental. Forsch., Akademie Verlag, 36 (2009) 1, p. 76, include only eponyms from Dur-Katlimmu! (see Freydank´s explanation on p. ... more
Hi Michael, On p. 76 then Freydank only noted (quite correctly) that Ninu'ayu belongs to the time after Ina-Assur-suma-asbat. I.e. Freydank does not revised his knowlwedge from 1991. Freydank has... more
Hi Tory, Based on this table of Freydank You're right. But now it is clear (and I think you know it) that Ina-Assur-suma-asbat must be placed earlier. Ina-Assur-suma-asbat should be placed before... more
Hi Michael But concerning the relationship between Ninu'ayu and Abi-ili my only intention was to show the reasons why Freydank put Ninu'ayu ahead - reasons, that apparently convinced other relevant... more
Hi Tory, 2009 is 3 years ago and the research has proceeded. Relevant scholars (they of course familiar with the work of Freydank) have own arguments there+after and the current agreement not depend... more
