Trebizond means table or a flat surface.

[Exo 25:23 KJV]
Thou shalt also make a table [of] shittim wood: two cubits [shall be] the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
Exodus LXX (the Greek translation of the Old Testament)
25:23 καὶ ποιήσεις τράπεζαν (trapezan) χρυσίου καθαροῦ δύο πήχεων τὸ μῆκος καὶ πήχεος τὸ εὖρος καὶ πήχεος καὶ ἡμίσους τὸ ὕψος


It leads me to assume that there was an association of sacrifices, a religious term. The 13th Century was the founding of the Empire of Trebizond and lasted until 1461, about 200 years. The Turcomans came into conflict. There were 2 groups of Turcomans in the late 14th and early 15th Centuries: the Kara Koyunlus (Black Sheep) and the Ak Koyunlus (White Sheep). Could there be any typological meaning to their names?

David in the 1Chronicles the 13th book focused on the priestly order in 1Chronicles 24 and the religious offices. Judah was considered to be more faithful to God than Israel in the 14th book 2Chronicles. And in the 15th book Ezra it was Judah who returned from captivity.
