geographical name ancient city of Babylonia on the Euphrates SSW of modern Baghdad

Britannica Concise

Ancient city, Babylonia, southwest of present-day Baghdad on the Euphrates River. From the 3rd millennium BC, it was a center of worship of the Sumerian sun-god Shamash. It was subject to the 1st dynasty of Babylon, but little else is known about the city before 1174 BC, when it was sacked by the Elamites. It recovered and was later captured by the Assyrians. Excavations, begun in 1882, have uncovered the remains of a large temple and thousands of religious and historic clay tablets.
