Bey Dağı, the tallest mountain in the Tahtalı Mountains, a peak with an elevation of 3075 m, might be identified as Mount Timur, that mountain range that forms a natural boundary between the kingdoms of Tabālu and Meliddu. Of course, it is possible that one of the other peaks in the Tahtalı Mountains could be the Timur mentioned in Assyrian royal inscriptions.
