Towns of aram.jpg

Naziba, was a small 'city', or 'city-state' south of Dimašqu-(Damascus), in the 1350-1335 BC Amarna letters correspondence. The town of Naziba was located near Amarna letters Qanu, now named Qanawat, and biblical Kenath.

Naziba, is part of a 6-letter series of letters, written by the same scribe, all entitled: "Ready for marching orders (1-6)". The letters are mostly identical, with only the city's Ruler and the location changing; they are letters EA 201-EA 206, (EA for 'el Amarna').
