'The treaty which had been proposed by the great king of Kheta, Kheta-sira, the powerful, the son of Maur-sira, the powerful, the son of the son of Sapalil, the great king of Kheta, the powerful, on the silver tablet, to Ramessu Miamun, the great prince of Egypt, the powerful, the son of Meneptah Seti, the great princePg 31 of Egypt, the powerful, the son's son of Ramessu I., the great king of Egypt, the powerful,—this was a good treaty for friendship and concord, which assured peace and established concord for a longer period than was previously the case, since a long time. ...'But now, from this very day forward, Kheta-sira, the great king of Kheta, shall look upon this treaty, so that the agreement may remain, which the god Ra has made, which the god Sutekh has made, for the people of Egypt and for the people of Kheta, that there should be no more enmity between them for evermore.' ...'If, on the other hand, there should flee away servants of the great king of Kheta, in order to betake themselves to Ramessu Miamun, the great prince of Egypt, in order to stay in Egypt, then those who have come from the land of Kheta in order to betake themselves to Ramessu Miamun, the great prince of Egypt, shall not be received by Ramessu Miamun, the great prince of Egypt, but the great prince of Egypt, Ramessu Miamun, shall deliver them up to the great king of Kheta.
About A. H. (Archibald Henry) Sayce, the Author:
In 1874 Sayce published a long paper, 'The Astronomy and Astrology of the Babylonians' in Transactions of the Society of Biblical Archaeology vol. 3, part 1), with transcriptions and translations of the relevant cuneiform texts, that was one of the first articles to recognise and translate astronomical cuneiform texts. ...In 1882, in a lecture to the Society of Biblical Archaeology in London, he announced that the Hittites, far from being a small Canaanite tribe who dealt with the kings of the northern Kingdom of Israel, were the people of a 'lost Hittite empire,' which Egyptian texts were then bringing to light.
