Etymology of the name URTAKI.
Meaning of the baby name URTAKI.


URTAKI.  A king of Elam.  He and his brother Teumman murdered their brother Ummanaldas, king of Elam, because he refused to break treaty with the Assyrians.  Urtaki then tried to stir up sedition among the Chaldeans, in favour of a chief named Nabu-dimtu, but in that he was unsuccessful.  A famine shortly afterwards broke out, when the Elamites emigrated to Assyria for food, and were generously received by Assurbanipal.  In spite of that kindness, at the instigation of his general, Maruduk-zakir-ibni, he invaded Babylonia, in concert with Belbasa, king of the Gambuli; but he was utterly defeated by the king of Assyria, and returning into Elam, cut his throat in despair.  He was succeeded by his brother, Teumman, who continued the war with Assyria.
    Urtaki, a relative and officer of Teumman, king of Elam, whom he assisted in his battle with Assurbanipal.  Being mortally wounded, and seeing that the day was lost, he called to an Assyrian soldier to cut off his head and take it to his master, which was done.  Teumman and his son were also slain. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
