The Helsinki Atlas location follows earlier proposals that identify Lusanda as Karahüyük, which is near Elbistan. Despite displaying Lusanda on Map 2, the Helsinki Atlas regards the certainty of that place as category "4" (conjectural or speculative). Note that this location likely falls outside the borders of Que in the ninth century BC and that one should look for Lusanda closer to Cilicia Pedias.
