In a recent article treating the location of ancient regions attested in early Sumero-Akkadian texts, the present writer proposed to identify the country of Meluḫḫa with a part of eastern Baluchistan in modern Pakistan (BSOAS, xxxvi, 3, 1973, 559–70). It was, however, also suggested that the name Meluḫḫa ‘may have been applied at times to regions which extended to the east of there’.1 This theory was not developed in the article because the possibility could not then be demonstrated factually.
