The mountain now called Mila Mergi was called Ilimeru in Assyrian texts of the 8th century B.C. The identification is provided by an Assyrian rock relief dating to the reign of Tiglath-pileser III. The mountain is located ca. 25 kilometers northwest of Dohuk in northern Iraq.

The identification of Mila Mergi as ancient Ilimeru is provided by an Akkadian inscription of the Neo-Assyrian king Tiglath-pileser III; the fifty-four-line inscription and accompanying relief are engraved on the side of the mountain.
