The Sumerian (or Akkadian) ceremonial name of the ziggurat at Kalhu is not recorded in extant Assyrian texts. An Akkadian text of the ninth-century-BC Assyrian king Shalmaneser III (r. 858–824 BC) inscribed on numerous bricks discovered at Kalhu refer to the temple-tower as the “ziggurat of the city Kalhu.”
