Hi Marianne

Forget Arnuwanda II. What makes you think Suppiluliuma I reigned for six more years after the Dahamunza affair?

Actually it is the combined reigns of Suppiluliuma (after the Daḫumnzu episode) and Arnuwanda 2.Assuming year A was the year of the Daḫumunzu episode.
Year A+1. Zannanza to Egypt. Suppiluliuma against the Gašga.
Year A+2. Piyaššili against Mittania, Arnuwanda against the Egyptian Syrian vassals.
Year A+3. Suppiluliuma against Ḫayaša.
Year A+4. Suppiliuliuma died, Arnuwanda succeeded.
Year A+5. Ḫannutti against the Gašga.
Year A+6. Arnuwanda died, Mursili succeeded.

Regards Joe
