He is identified on a Synchronistic King List fragment[i 3] as Marduk-[bēl]-x, which gives his place in the sequence and reigned around the beginning of the 8th century. He was a rather obscure monarch and the penultimate predecessor of Erība-Marduk who was to restore order after years of chaos.[2]Biography[edit]He is known from a single economic text[i 1] from the southern city of Udāni dated to his accession year (MU.SAG.NAM.LUGAL). This city was a satellite cultic center to Uruk, of uncertain location but possibly near Marad, later to be known as Udannu, associated with the deities dIGI.DU (the two infernal Nergals) and Bēlet-Eanna (associated with Ištar).[3] The document records the parts of a chariot including the wagon pole (mašaddu) which had been entrusted by Belšunu, the šangû or chief administrator[4] of Udāni to the temple of dIGI.DU (Igišta, Palil?).[1] He is tentatively restored to the Dynastic Chronicle[i 2] where he is described as “a soldier” (lúaga.[úš]) but his circumstances are otherwise unknown.[5]Inscriptions[edit]^ Jump up to: a b Tablet YBC 11546 in the Yale Babylonian Collection.^ Jump up to: a b Dynastic Chronicle vi 2.^ Jump up to: a b Synchronistic King List, tablet VAT 11345 (KAV 13), 2.References[edit]^ Jump up to: a b J.
