Propose moving to ancient name of "Sam'al"[edit]

Since this is an archaeological site, propose renaming the article after its original ancient name. Categorystuff (talk) 19:33, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

There is no conclusive evidence that the culture which produced the stele speaking of the Soul was Semitic. They definitely were influenced by Semitic culture, but the region was a Neo-Hittite state as it existed in the time frame in question. From the helmeted appearance, it appears that the person in the inscription wears a cap similar to those of Phrygians. The ancestral Luwians moved East from Phrygia during the Hittite time period, eventually settling in the anti-Taurus region. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.234.11.22 (talk) 19:09, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Merge Kingdom of Sam'al to here[edit]

Kingdom of Sam'al has recently been created but it overlaps to a large extent with this article. Further, other pages on city-states like Ebla and Mari, Syria also deal with both the archaeological site and the political entity they once represented. Therefore, I propose to merge Kingdom of Sam'al to here. -- Zoeperkoe (talk) 04:00, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
