The city is mentioned in royal inscriptions of the Assyrian kings Tiglath-pileser III (r. 744-727 BC) and Sargon II (r. 721-705). Two locations have been suggested for the city *Atuna: (1) in the vicinity of Bozça (Bohça), on the Kızılırmak river, ca. 40 km west of Kayseri; and (2) in the vicinity of Porsuk/Zeyve Hüyük. The latter is based on the proposed location of classical Tynna, a city that might be identified with *Atuna. For further details, see the Place Resource for Tynna/Dana?.
