Bit Baḫiani was an independent Hittite city-state kingdom (c. 1200 – 808 BC) and an Assyrian province (c. 810 – 706 BC) with its capital at Guzana (modern day Tell Halaf). Bit Baḫiani was ruled by King Kapara. After becoming a tributary to Assyria an alliance with Izalla to revolt was formed. There were at least five kings and four governors of Bit Baḫiani before losing its name in usage.[1][2]
