A city of southern Mesopotamia attested from the Fara period (Early Dynastic IIIa) through the Old Babylonian period, located on the Tigris river near Nippur, about 60-80km north of Umma. The exact location of the site is unknown to archaeologists, but known to looters, who have stolen and sold thousands of tablets from the site.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
