PU-Sarruma (PU-LUGAL-ma, mPU-?àr-(rù)-ma, possibly representing Hi?mi-?arruma) is a conjectured pre-Empire king of the Hittites. The conjecture was forwarded by Emil Forrer and is not commonly accepted.

He would have reigned around 1600 BC (short chronology).


Hi?mi-?arruma would correspond to the grandfather of Hattusili I and the father-in-law of Labarna I and true father of Papahdilmah, mentioned (but not by name) by Hattusili. Hi?mi-?arruma was also a father of Tawannanna.[2]

Virtually nothing is known of PU-?arruma's life, who is a very shadowy figure. PU-?arruma's sons had turned against their father, so that, while he was in the city of ?anahwitta, he named his son-in-law Labarna as his successor.[3] However, Papahdilmah still had support among the king's servants and chief officers.
