Modern Giricano, site of the ancient Dunnu-ša-Uzībiis, is located in the Upper Tigris region of south-eastern Turkey, in the province of Diyarbakir, about 11 km southeast of modern Bismil, ca. 5 km northwest of Ziyaret Tepe, on the north bank of the Tigris River.

Pleiades

The mound was excavated between 1999 and 2003; occupation levels from the Chalcolithic period until Middle Assyrian times were uncovered. Fifteen cuneiform tablets (written in the Akkadian language) dating to the reign of the Assyrian king Aššur-bēl-kala of Assyria (1073–1056 BCE) were discovered at Giricano, thus, establishing the city’s ancient name as Dunnu-ša-Uzībi.
