Description:
<!-- need a source for the speculation - bible passages are OK for existence of name -->Telassar (Tel-as′sar) is mentioned twice in the Bible. First at 2nd Kings 19:12 (or according to the Greek Septuagent, 4th Kings 19:12), and secondly at Isaiah 37:12.

According to those two scriptures, Tel-assar was a place inhabited by “the people of Eden” and is mentioned along with Gozan and Haran, which are in northern Mesopotamia, and Rezeph, the exact location of which is not known, several places having had this name. One such site, thought by some to have been part of an ancient district, is identified with modern Rusa’feh, located West of the Euphrates about 145&nbsp;km (90&nbsp;mi) South of modern Haran. It is thus in the vicinity of the suggested site of Gozan, with which Rezeph is mentioned. Sennacherib boasted, through his messengers, that the gods worshiped by the people of these places had been unable to deliver them from his forefathers.
