The proposed location of the Adad Gate is based on Pedersén 2021 fig. 2.1, which shows a plan of Babylon, with 500 m UTM coordinates given. The suggested coordinates correspond with a high mound that preserves traces of the ruins of the western wall of the inner city of Babylon. These might belong to the Adad Gate.
