Shuttarna I

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Shuttarna I was an early king of the Mitanni.[1]

His name is recorded on a seal found at Alalakh. The inscription reads "son of Kirta" and is the only reference about this king yet discovered.[2] He would have reigned at the end of 16th century BC (middle chronology).
