Sin-Iddinam

Sin-Iddinam (𒀭𒂗𒍪𒄿𒁷𒈾𒄠, dsuen-i-din-nam) ruled the ancient Near East city-state of Larsa from 1785 BC to 1778 BC. He was the son of Nur-Adad, with whom there may have been a short co-regency overlap.[1] [2] [3]

The annals for his 7-year reign record that he campaigned against Babylon in year 4, Ibrat and Malgium in year 5, and Eshnunna in year 6.

Sin-Iddinam is also known for a prayer to God Utu, whom he describes as "Father of the black-headed ones".[4]

Dedication tablet of Sin-Iddinam. The name "Sin-Iddinam" is mentioned in the 7th column from the right.
Obverse: "(For) Utu, / lord of justice of heaven and earth, / learned in decision, / the one who chooses in favor of innocence, / the king of Ebabbar, / his king, / Sin-iddinam, / the shepherd who decorates everything / for Nippur, / the provider of Ur, / king of Larsa, / king of Sumer and Akkad, / the Ebabbar, / his beloved house,"
Reverse: "for the sake of his life, / he built (it) / For abundant distant days / he enlarged that dwelling place. / With the thing that he (Sin-iddinam) has done, / (may) Utu, / rejoice. / A life of sweet things / (and) bright days / as a reward, / may he (Utu) give to him (Sin-iddinam)".
