Localization
(sure or highly probable)
If this was the name used for the city of Time/ilkiya in the period of Hittties (Cornelius 1958: 379 ; Goetze 1960: 48) then one must look fort his city in the vicinity of Hahhum and Hurama since they were mentioned together.
   
Other Localization Proposals Cornelius (1958: 379) and Goetze (1960: 48) equals the city of Tapalka to Timilkiya Forlanini suggests that one must look for the city in Adıyaman (Forlanini 1986: Tav. XVI 5)
