Nērebtum is a medium-sized Bronze Age settlement located east of Baghdad on the left bank of the Diyala river. Nērebtum was inhabited from the third to the early second millennium BCE. Excavations at the site by the University of Chicago from 1934 to 1936 exposed two extensive temple structures, one dedicated to the moon god Sîn, another to the goddess Ištar-Kititum, along with extensive fortification walls and private houses.
