Sabium

Background

Sabium (also Sabum) was an Amorite King in the First Dynasty of Babylon, the Amorite Dynasty. He reigned ca. 1781 BC – 1767 BC (short chronology), and ruled what was at the time a recently created, small and minor Amorite kingdom which included the town of Babylon. Sabium makes no claim of kingship of Babylon itself, suggesting that it had not yet grown into the major metropolis it would become under his descendant Hammurabi[1] See also[edit] Ancient Near East portal Babylonia References[edit] Jump up ^ [1] Year names of Sabium of Babylon - CDLI Regnal titles Preceded by Sumu-la-El King of Babylon 1781 BC-1767 BC Succeeded by Apil-Sin
