Bit Bahiani

Bit-Bahiani and other Aramaic kingdoms in the 10th/9th century BC

Bit Bahiani was an independent Aramaean city-state kingdom (ca. 1200 - 808 BC) and an Assyrian province (ca. ~810 - 706 BC) with its capital at Guzana (modern day Tell Halaf). Bit Bahiani 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 Bahiani before losing its name in usage.
