The city wall of Nippur according to the so-called "Kuyunjik Ziqqurrat List" (7th century B.C.). Its Akkadian ceremonial name means "The God Marduk Showed Favor."

The earliest textual evidence for the name of the wall comes from the reign of the Babylonian king Adad-apla-iddina (1068-1047 B.C.). Excavations at Nippur clearly shows that a city wall existed as early as the Early Dynastic Period. Although parts of the Nippur's wall have been excavated, no visible traces of it can be seen in satellite imagery (Corona or modern) and, therefore, no coordinates for it can be provided with any degree of certainty.
