First amiga assembler

Hello coders, I´ve a question for the oldschool members. (its for a work)

Anyone knows which was the first assembler on Amiga?

A68K ? Digital Research Assembler ? Metacomco Macro Assembler ?
OMA ? Seka Assembler?

I don't know. (No, that's not what you wanted to know.)

Define "first". For first commercial I would guess Metacomco.
However, Amiga Inc must have used some kind of assembler during bringup and it was probably running on the SAGE machines. They have infamously used the Greenhills C compiler, so perhaps that company also had an assembler - if it produced intermediary assembler code then they had at least a rudimentary one, though perhaps not a fully fleshed one.

Seka was early, but the first should be some US command line assembler feels like

First one to output Amiga programs was probably part of the early cross-tools, see the disks at the bottom of the gallery:

I'm also guessing that Metacomco Macro Assembler was the first one to run directly on the Amiga.
