Localization
(sure or highly probable)
The city must be searched in the north of Kizzuwatna, in an area which was controlled by Išmirika Country.
   
Other Localization Proposals Tiruša must be searched somewhere north of Kizzuwatna (RGTC 6: 428). Also can be searched in Kommagene (Goetze 1953: 70).
