  • = Blackwell N.G., Ahhiyawa, Hatti, and Diplomacy: Implications of Hittite Misperceptions of the Mycenaean World, in: Hesperia 90/2 191-231. [Stable URL: https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.2972/hesperia.90.2.0191. (Abstract: This article considers formal diplomatic relations between the Mycenaeans and Hittites through analysis of the Hittite Tawagalawa Letter. Consensus attributes that tablet’s authorship to Hattušili III (ca. 1267–1237 b.c.), who complained to the king of Ahhiyawa about a Hittite renegade named Piyamaradu. The historical context of Hattušili’s foreign policy, particularly his Treaty of Kadesh with the Egyptian pharaoh Rameses II, supports a revised understanding of his correspondence with Ahhiyawa. The Tawagalawa Letter alludes to an existing nonaggression pact between Hatti and Ahhiyawa modeled after the well-known Hittite-Egyptian contract. This new idea reconciles the discrepancy between a unified Ahhiyawa and a politically fragmented Mycenaean world. Such diplomacy can also account for technological similarities that exist between Mycenae and Hattuša)]
