In 713 BC, Tabal (together with the reigion Bit-Purutaš) was conquered by the Assyrian king Sargon II (r. 721-705 BC) and established as an Assyrian province. However, by 711 BC, Assyria lost control over the region of Tabālu.

It has been suggested that Kululu, a city ca. 60 km northeast of Kayseri, was the capital of Bīt-Purutaš, as well as that of the short-lived Assyrian province of Tabal.
