Hilakku was one of the Neo-Hittite states during the Iron Age in southern Anatolia during the 1st millennium BC.[1]

Hilakku was north of the Neo-Hittite state of Tabal, west of Que, and north of the Mediterranean sea. It covered the land of Cilicia Tracheia, (Latin Aspera) of the Classical age,[2] otherwise known as 'Rough Cilicia'. It was also within the south-eastern frontiers of the Hittite appanage domain of Tarhuntassa.[3]
