Dur-Sharrukku is an unlocated city in northern Babylonia that also goes by the name Sippar-Aruru (starting in the 7th century B.C.). In the 8th century B.C., Dur-Sharrukku served as an Assyrian provincial center.

The Helsinki Atlas of the Near East in the Neo-Assyrian Period tentatively proposes that Sippar-Aruru is to be identified as modern Tell ed-Der, a site generally regarded by scholars as ancient Sippar-Amnanum (also called Sippar-Anunītu). There is presently no (textual or archaeological) evidence to support Parpola's proposed identification of Dur-Sharrukku/Sippar-Aruru. See Sippar-Amnanum in Pleiades.
