Lutibu is a fortified city in Sam'alla that is mentioned in royal inscriptions of the Assyrian king Shalmaneser III (r. 858-824 BC). It is often identified with Sakçagözü (Coba Höyük), which is ca. 20 km northeast of Sam'al (Zincirli Höyük).

    Most scholars identify Lutibu as Sakçagözü (Coba Höyük), which is ca. 20 km northeast of Sam'al (Zincirli Höyük). Yesemek, which is about 20 km southeast of Zincirli, has been suggested as an alternative location of Lutibu.
