Gutium is a designation appearing in cuneiform texts of the third, second, and first millennia B.C. for the land of the Gutians (Akkadian Gutî or Qutî), a people responsible for bringing an end to the Akkadian empire. In first millennium B.C. sources, the name is used as an archaic designation for the region northeast of Babylonia, near and in the Zagros Mountains.

With the fall of Agade, “kingship” passed to Gutium according to the Sumerian King List (which lists twenty-one of its rulers). During the Sargonic and Ur III Periods, Gutium was a region in the Iranian highlands or in the valleys of the Zagros Mountains.
