Gindibu led the Arab forces at the Battle of Qarqar (853 BCE), as an ally of Ben Haddad the king of the Aramean state of Damascus, as they fought against Assyria. He appears on the Kurkh Monolith, on which an Assyrian scribe recorded a description of the size of the enemy forces facing king Shalmaneser III, and a record containing "the first known reference to the Arabs as a distinct group".[1] Little else is known of Gindibu or the Arabs of his time.
