The location of Tanakun is uncertain. M.V. Seton-Williams (Anatolian Studies 4 [1954]) suggests Sirkeli Höyük as a possible location. However, most scholars today (e.g., Bagg, RGTC 7/1, 249 and Karte [unnumbered]) suggest that Tanakun should be (tentatively) identified with Domuztepe Höyük, which is located ca. 20 km southeast of Kardirli, on the Ceyhan River.
