The Ancestors of Labarna I and the Cruciform Seal
Keywords:Early Hittite history, Hittite royal list, offering lists, Cruciform Seal, Zalpa-text
This paper argues that the evidence of the Offering List C and the Cruciform Seal on the early Hittite rulers can only be reconciled with each other, if the former’s entry on Labarna refers to the ancestors of Labarna I and not of Ḫattušili I, as hitherto assumed.
