tar´pel - ı̄ts ( טּרפּליא , ṭarpelāyē' ( Ezra 4:9 )): Various theories have been advanced as to the identity of the Tarpelites. Rawlinson suggested the Tuplai, which name appears in the inscriptions as equivalent to the Greek Tibarēnoı́ , a tribe on the coast of Pontus. Hitzig located them in Tripolis in Northern Phoenicia. The latest theory emends the text to טפסריא , ṭı̄phṣerayā' , "tablet-writers" (from the Assyrian dup sarru); compare Schrader, Schrader, The Cuneiform Inscriptions and the Old Testament , on Jeremiah 51:27 .
