Pleiades

The Assyrian king Sargon II (r. 721-705 BC) states in several of his inscriptions that he fortified Uargin, Usi, and Usian against Musku (Phrygia). All three are generally assumed to have been located in the vicinity of Til-garimmu, a fortified city in Kammanu/Meliddu, on the border of Tabālu.

E. Forrer suggested that Usi should be identified as classical Chusa (probably Yasıköy), which is ca. 45 km east of Aksaray (classical Garsaura). Forrer's speculative proposal is not entirely convincing since that suggested location is rather far from Til-garimmu, assuming that Usi was actually in close proximity to it, as Sargon's inscriptions seem to indicate.
