According to the Babylonian topographical text Tintir = Babylon, nu-x-ù/nu-HAR-UD (name fragmentary and not reconstructable) was one of the four city districts of the western half of the inner city of Babylon.

    • nu-x-ù (Akkadian, 1600 BC - 30 BC)

The name of this city district in western Babylon is corrupt, damaged, or illegible in all extant and identified copies of Tintir = Babylon V (line 99). Because it did not have any temples, shrines, or daises, it is not mentioned in Tintir = Babylon IV. nu-x-ù/nu-HAR-UD is the westernmost city district and it appears to have been bounded on the south, west, and north by the walls Imgur-Enlil and Nēmetti-Enlil (with access in and out of the inner city by the Adad Gate and probably also the King’s Gate) and on the west by the Bāb-Lugalerra, Kumar, and Tuba districts. According to Tintir = Babylon V (line 99), the western and eastern limits of nu-x-ù/nu-HAR-UD were the Adad Gate and Akus Gate (which formed part of the former, Old Babylonian city wall).
