Eridu was an ancient city of Sumeria and perhaps one of the first true cities. The site is settled from ca. 5300 B.C. onward. Eridu was located approximately Located 12 km southwest of Ur and was the southernmost of a conglomeration of Sumerian cities that grew up around temple complexes.

Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 93 C3 Eridu

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Abu Shahrein IRQ. The site of Eridu was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2016. The statement on justifying the inclusion reads, in part, "The archaeological cities of Uruk and Ur and the Tell Eridu archaeological site form part of the remains of the Sumerian cities and settlements that developed in southern Mesopotamia between the 4th and the 3rd millennium BCE in the marshy delta of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers."
