History In the agreement between I. Šuppiluliuma and Mattiwaza, it is mentioned that I. Šuppiluliuma conquers the lands which rebelled during his father’s time, and these lands include Tipurziya.

(sure or highly probable)
City of Tipurziya must be searched in an area near İšuwa. Isuwa comprises today’s Elazığ, and it is lined off by Murat River in North and The Euphrates southwest (Klengel 1968: 63). Seal prints got hold in the excavations made by M. Von Loon and Guterbock in Korucutepe (today’s İçme) shows that place could be Isuwa by the important names on the seals like Kilu-hepa, Ari- Šarruma and Ehli- Šarruma (Ertem 1990: 578, 581).
Other Localization Proposals Cornelius claims that Tipurziya is the same city with Tupaziya and localizes in Amanos Mountains (1958a: 7).
