Chapter Summary

The Amarna tablets mention the city known as the seat of a Kumidi Rabis. In addition to the Rabis a local ruler for Kumidi testifies Arahattu, "the man of Kumidi". The author in the spring of 1962 the Biqä c toured with Rolf Hachmann, the director of the Institute of Prehistory and early history and Near Eastern archaeology, University of the Saarland. This was done with the aim to identify most favorable possible object for joint excavation. The choice fell on the Tell el-Kämid Loez. Crushed stone foundations and are listed in mud brick. Some of them very well preserved and still stand up to a height of 1.50 m. The Closest parallel in time to the Late Bronze Age temple of part Kämid el-Loez is made of Tukulti-Ninurta I. The original context of the chapter is in German.
