Dear Arthur,
did you look at :
• Jarl Charpentier, Die Suparṇasage. Untersuchungen zur altindischen Literatur- und Sagengeschichte, Uppsala: Α. Β. Akademiska Bokhandeln - Leipzig: Otto Harrassowitz, 1922, in-8°, 399 pp.
on the legend of Suparṇa stealing the soma/amṛta according to the Suparṇādhyāya etc.
Cf. review by P.E. Dumont: http://www.persee.fr/web/revues/home/prescript/article/rbph_0035-0818_1923_num_2_4_6264_t1_0713_0000_1
Maybe also something to find on the "ambrosia cycle" in :
• Georges Dumézil, Le Festin d'immortalité. Étude de mythologie comparée indo-européenne, Paris, Annales du Musée Guimet, Bibliothèque d'études 34.
Best wishes,

> However,  there is a however: I am especially interested in any pre-Mahabharatic (if I may say so) mentions of amrita as an object of contention, strife - something that is, independently of its supposed material form (liquid, metal, plant), fought for, stolen, divided, distributed, shared.
