      Dear Cynthia,


      I am quite sure that other people here will have more information, but in the Babylonian Chronicle (the Wiseman one), you have it [Grayson, Assyrian and Babyælonian Chronicles. P. 100, l. 16: a-na KURḪat-tú illik-ma etc.]

      A question I would have asked dear Avigdor z"l if he were still with us:


      How long was the currency of the geographic term "mat hatti"? Was it still in use in the Babylonian and Persian periods (references please)?

      Is it plausible that a Bab. or Persian period Judean scribe, who was educated in Mesopotamian literary tradition, would be familiar with the term?
