Localization
(sure or highly probable)
   
Other Localization Proposals Pishuru was obviously in the North, probably immediately to the east of the Lower Halys, from which the Kaskan territory extended to the North of Tiliura, where the Kaskaeans were strong (Garstang-Gurney 1959: 25).
In the east of Amasya-Turhal line (von Schuler 1965: 41).
In the north of Amasya-Tokat line (Ünal 1974: 208f.).
