Satatna, or Sitatna, and also Šutatna/Shutatna-(of a Babylonian letter of Burna-Buriash), was a 'Mayor'/Ruler of Akka, or Acco, modern Acre, Israel, during the 1350-1335 BC Amarna letters correspondence.
Satatna was the author of 3 letters to the Egyptian pharaoh, letters EA 233-235, (EA for 'el Amarna'). He is referenced in another minor vassal letter of Ruler: "Bayadi of Syria", and he is also referred to in EA 8, by Burna-Buriash as "..Šutatna, the son of Šaratum-(Surata) of Akka..."
A list of Satatna authored letters is as follows:
