The processional road of the god Marduk in Babylon, whose Akkadian ceremonial name means "May the Arrogant Not Flourish." The street runs north-south through the city, from the Ištar Gate to the Esagil temple. The northern stretch of Ay-ibūr-šabû is sometimes referred to as Ištar-lamassi-ummānīšu ("The goddess Ištar is the Guardian Angel of Her Troops").
