The earliest textual evidence for the name of the outer wall of Nippur comes from the reign of the Babylonian king Adad-apla-iddina (1068-1047 B.C.). Excavations at Nippur clearly show that a city wall existed as early as the Early Dynastic Period. Although parts of the Nippur's outer wall have been excavated, no visible traces of it can be seen in satellite imagery (Corona or modern) and, therefore, no coordinates for it can be provided with any degree of certainty. The (shorter) outer, stone wall Nēmed-Marduk abuts the great, inner wall Imgur-Marduk.
