Meaning of the baby name MUSKÁ.


MUSKÁ.  Assyrian form of biblical Meshech (q.v.), possibly meaning either "possessor" or "one who runs about."

    III. Tiglath-pileser I states that the Muská or Moschi, who for fifty years had held the lands of Alzi and Purukuzzi in subjection, invaded Kummukh.  Alzi and Purukuzzi lay on the southern bank of the Euphrates between Palu and Khini, and were regarded as forming part of the Assyrian province of Subari or Subarti.  The cities of Subarti, Tiglath-pileser further informas us, had been captured by "4,000 men of the Kaskâ and the Urumâ, soldiers of the Hittites," and on this account Alzi and Purukuzzi had withheld their tribute.  At first sight, therefore, it would appear as if the Muská and the Hittites were identified together.  Closer study of the text, however, shows that such is not the case, and that the invasion of Alzi by the Hittites was subsequent to its occupation by the Muská.
