place name in 4Q537?

Dear colleagues,
        In reading the fragments of 4Q537 (PAM 43.599) I have come across
the following text which I cite through transliteration: *`lwhy krypw byn
mdy lprs w'twr*. Given that *mdy*, *prs*, and *'twr* refer to Media,
Persia, and Assyria respectively, what does *krypw* represent? These
letters on the line seem to be rather clear. I would be grateful for any
ideas, as I have not as yet come across this word/place name.
