Sumu-abum

Background

Sumu-Abum (also Su-abu) was an Amorite, and the first King of the First Dynasty of Babylon (the Amorite Dynasty). He reigned from 1894-1877 BC (middle chronology). He freed a small area of land previously ruled by the fellow Amorite city state of Kazallu which included Babylon, then a minor administrative center in southern Mesopotamia. Sumu-Abum (and indeed the three Amorite kings succeeding him) makes no claim to be King of Babylon, suggesting that the town was at this time still of little importance.[1]References[edit]Jump up ^ http://cdli.ucla.edu/tools/yearnames/HTML/T12K1.htm Year names of Sumu-Abum of Babylon - CDLIRegnal titlesPreceded byNew creationKing of Babylon1830 BC-1817 BCSucceeded bySumu-la-El
