from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tepti-Ahar , also Tempt-ahar , was an Elamite king. As several inscriptions show, he was the builder of the Haft Tepe complex . In several seal impressions he calls himself “servant of the gods Kirwasir and Inšušinak ”, the latter being the main god of Susa . Since one of his reigns is titled “when the king drove out the Kadašman-Enlil ”, the second quarter of the 14th century can be set for his reign. In other places it is hardly occupied. In Susa it is mentioned in some legal documents and on some bricks. The latter testify to his building activity in this city.
