Title: Sumuel  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia

Subject: Larsa, List of kings of Babylon, Short chronology timeline
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Sumuel or Sumu-El ruled the ancient Near East city-state of Larsa from c. 1830 BC to 1801 BC. He was an Amorite.[1][2][3]

Annals for his complete 29-year reign have survived; thus it is known that he campaigned against Akusum and Kazallu in his year 4, Uruk in year 5, Pinaratim in year 8, Sabum in year 10, Kish in year 11, Kazallu in year 15, Nanna-Isha in 16, and Umma at the end of his reign. Most of these seem to be names of small villages along the Euphrates.
