HouseGutian Dynasty of Sumer

Sarlagab or Zarlagab (c. 2200 BC)[1][2][3]) was the second Gutian ruler of the Gutian Dynasty of Sumer mentioned on the Sumerian King List as possibly reigning for six years.

Sarlagab may have been a contemporary of the Akkadian king Shar-kali-sharri (r. 2217-2193 BC), if he is the same Gutian king Sharlag whom Shar-kali-sharri captured according to one of his year-names: "the year in which Szarkaliszarri (...) took prisoner Szarlag(ab) the king of Gutium".[4][5] According to the King List, he was the successor of Inkishush. Shulme then succeeded Sarlagab.
