Miller, J. 2013: Royal Hittite Instructions and Related Administrative Texts, Atlanta.
Administration Ḫartana was part of the “province” of Ka/iššiya at the time of King Arnuwanda I, as the Loyalty Oath of town commanders to this king (Miller 2013: 194-205) shows.
Cult A passage of the Cult Inventory KUB 32.32 obv. 3 deals with the building of some temples at Ḫartana. This same text mentions the cult of the mount Ziwana, when speaking of Ḫartana;
according to Forlanini (2009: 58-59) the Hittite city Ḫartana might be located at Külhöyük; therefore the mountain Ziwana might correspond to Gavurkalesi.
