Bazaya, B?z?ia or B?z?iu, inscribed mba-za-a-a and of uncertain meaning, was the ruler of Assyria rather speculatively c. 1649-1622 BC, the 52nd listed on the Assyrian King List, succeeding Iptar-Sin, to whom he was supposedly a great-uncle. He reigned for twenty-eight years and has left no known inscriptions.[1]

Biography

The Assyrian king lists[i 1][i 2][i 3] give Bazaya's five predecessors as father-son successors, although all reigned during a fifty-two period, stretching genealogical credibility. All three extant copies give his father as Bel-bani, the second in the sequence, whose reign had ended forty-one years earlier and who had been the great-grandfather of his immediate predecessor.[2] The literal reading of the list was challenged by Landsberger who suggested that the three preceding kings, Libaya, Sharma-Adad I and Iptar-Sin may have been Bel-bani's brothers.[3]

The Synchronistic Kinglist[i 4] gives his Babylonian counterpart as Peshgaldaramesh of the Sealand Dynasty. He was succeeded by Lullaya, a usurper, whose brief reign was followed by that of B?z?iu's own son, Shu-Ninua.[4]
