Taite (called Taidu in Assyrian sources) was one of the capitals of the Mitanni Empire. Its exact location is still unknown, although it is speculated to be in the Khabur region. The site of Tell Hamidiya (Tall al-hamidiya) has recently been identified with ancient Taite by the Italian scholar Mirjo Salvini.
