A site on the right bank of the Lower Zab that was excavated by Iraqi archaeologists in 1956–58. Tell Bazmusian, whose ancient name is not known, is one of the largest archaeological sites in the Ranya Plain (Sulaymaniyah Governorate, Iraq). The city was occupied from the sixth millennium BCE to the ninth century CE. A small group of Middle Assyrian tablets were discovered in a pit outside the city’s temple. Tell Bazmusian is now submerged under Lake Dukan.
