Perhaps Hattics borrow Tiwaz from PIE, and not vice-versa.
The name Tarhu/Tarkhu/Tarku is related to Etruscan Tarquinius.

>>For one thing Hattic Taru is clearly related to Hittite Tarhunt,
which means we got an IE thunder god recalling Norse Thor, Celtic
Taranis, Slavic Perun in Hattic land.
Is Slavic Perun = Lithuanian Perkunas = Latvian Perkons = Prussian Percunis (= god of rain, storm and clouds Parjanya- in Sanscrit?), which is related with Latin quercus "oak-tree" (a tree, that is closely connected with Perkunas in the Baltic mythology), really related with Tarhunt, etc.? V. Ivanov relate Hittite god Pirwa- (Perwa-, Pirua-), Norse Fjorgyn (mother of Thor) with Perkunas.

>>Sun god Tiwaz, resembling Tyr or Old English Tiw.
Perhaps also Greek Theos, Latin Deus, Lithuanian Dievas, etc.? This god is IE, not Hattic.
>>It all says to me that a lot of old IE myth was very similar to Old
Hattic myths. That raises some interesting questions about how
exactly these cultures share the same myths.
Is it easy to establish, which myth (or god) is Hattic, and which is Hittite?
