History In Hittite legal texts, soldiers of Tašhiniya were exempt from šahhan and luzzi together with some cities, but this was removed some time later (Imparati 1992: 73 f. art. 54). after Alalakh, the city of Tašhiniya was the third city that went through a campaign in the period of Hattušili I (KBo 10.2 Obv. I 15 f.).

Localization
(sure or highly probable)
After the campaign of Alalakh, Hattušili I made campaigns to Uršu, İkakala and Tašhiniya respectively. This means one must look for the city in the vicinity of Uršu.
   
Other Localization Proposals Goetze (1953: 69), Otten (1958:78), Schuler (1965: 21) suggest that one must look for the city of Tašhiniya in Euphrates Region.
