Tell Tayinat (ancient Kunulua) is a large site (comprising both a sizeable citadel and a sprawling lower town) located at the northern bend of the Orontes River, ca. 30 km southeast of Antakya (ancient Antioch). Strategically located, this fortified city served as a royal capital for various historically-attested Bronze and Iron Age kingdoms (ca. 3200-600 B.C.). In 738 B.C., the Assyrian king Tiglath-pileser III conquered Kunulua (alternately called Kinalua), then the royal city of Syro-Hittite kingdom of Patina, annexed it, and transformed it into an important provincial administrative center. Textual evidence found at the site (e.g., a large tablet inscribed with a copy of Esarhaddon’s Succession Treaty) leaves little doubt that Kunulua should be identified as Tell Tayinat.

In Assyrian sources of the first millennium B.C., the city is referred to as Kinalia (reign of Tiglath-pileser III), Kinalua (reign of Shalmaneser III), Kullania (7th century B.C.), Kunalua (reign of Shalmaneser III), Kunalia (reigns of Tiglath-pileser III and Esarhaddon), and Kunulua (reign of Ashurnasirpal II).

Duplicates an existing place in drafting state - https://pleiades.stoa.org/places/396835453/ - perhaps entries can be combined?

I do not have sufficient access to view 396835453 so I cannot confirm. If it was entered by chorst, it is likely and if that is the case, please delete that entry and use this one instead.
