Hasanlu_LBA_A singleton is almost certainly an Indo-Iranian person affiliated to Mitanni Aryans. He is dated at 1354BC. It's Y dna is uploaded to Yfull. (https://www.yfull.com/tree/J-ZS6592/)
It's main peculiarity is the high level of Iran Neolithic and Steppe ancestry.
His J1 Y dna branch was found in Turkmenistan Neolithic farmers. Also in Turkmenistan BMAC, Gonur tepe. It was also found in early Saka Scythian samples which leave little doubt that this was a BMAC lineage incorporated into Indo-Iranians.
Another sample with unusually high Iran_Neo is the Alalakh outlier. A woman who without doubt had a Central Asian origin. I just put her next to to Turkmenistan LBA sample from Parkhai to compare them.
Another group with high Iran_Neo is the Dinkha tepe B cluster. But I don't think they were Aryans but rather local Iranian non-IE plateau people who started to migrate to west during the Bronze Age. Like Turukkeans and Kassites. I had a thread about them. See below for the link.
In sum we see more evidence that the migration of Mitanni Aryans was a real event that occured in Bronze Age starting from 1700bc. They moved via North Iran from Central Asia and not via Caucasus like some scholars were suggesting.
