The name as currently given is based upon a 1920s reading that is no longer supported by direct evidence as the document from which it was derived is now too badly damaged to discern the characters proposed.[1]Biography[edit]His most recent predecessor known by name was Baba-aḫa-iddina, whose reign ended perhaps around twelve years earlier. During the interregnum there was no king for several years[i 1] and then a succession of five whose names have not survived. The only records of events during this period come from the chronicles of the Assyrian eponym dating system. These record that Šamši-Adad V’s seventh campaign was against Babylonia. His successor, Adad-nirari III, initially campaigned in the west[i 2] but during 802 BC the chronicle records “to the sea,” thought to be Sealand of southern Mesopotamia. In 795 and 794 BC he campaigned in Dēr.[2] The Synchronistic History[i 3] ended with his reign and records:(The) king of Karduniaš, bowed down … He brought back the abducted people and granted them an income, privileges, and barley rations. The peoples of Assyria and Karduniaš were joined together. They fixed the boundary-line by mutual consent.— Synchronistic History, Column 4, lines 15–16 and 19–22.Ninurta-apla-X’s successor was the similarly obscure king, Marduk-bēl-zēri.Inscriptions[edit]Jump up ^ Chronicle 24 r 8.Jump up ^ Stele, BM 131124.Jump up ^ Synchronistic History (ABC 21), K4401a + Rm 854.References[edit]Jump up ^ J.
