[Dur-Katlimmu]/Magdalu (modern Tell Schech Hamad in Syria) is a multi-period human settlement where occupation began in the Late Chalcolithic period and continued/reoccurred into the Roman period. The Assyrian city of Dur-Katlimmu (tenth to seventh centuries BCE) was perhaps founded by Shalmaneser I.
