Ammi-Saduqa in Wordpress
Ammi-Saduqa (or Ammisaduqa, Ammizaduga) was a king (ca. 1582 – 1562 BC short chronology) of the First Dynasty of Babylon. Some 21 year-names survive for his reign, including the first 17. The names indicate that these years were fairly peaceful ones for the kingdom of Ammi-Saduqa, who was primarily engaged in enriching and enlarging the temples, and a few other building projects, such as building a wall at the mouth of the Euphrates in his 11th regnal year.
