Only the Koldewey expedition recovered artifacts from the Old Babylonian period. These included clay tablets, stored in private houses, with Sumerian literature and lexical documents.

Nearby ancient settlements are Kish , Borsippa , Dilbat , and Kutha. Historical knowledge of early Babylon must be pieced together from epigraphic remains found elsewhere, such as at Uruk , Nippur , and Haradum.

Information on the Neo-Babylonian city is available from archaeological excavations and from classical sources. Babylon was described, perhaps even visited, by a number of classical historians including Ctesias , Herodotus , Quintus Curtius Rufus , Strabo , and Cleitarchus.

These reports are of variable accuracy and some of the content was politically motivated, but these still provide useful information.

References to the city of Babylon can be found in Akkadian and Sumerian literature from the late third millennium BC. Babylon also appears in the administrative records of the Third Dynasty of Ur , which collected in-kind tax payments and appointed an ensi as local governor.

A later chronicle states that Sargon "dug up the dirt of the pit of Babylon, and made a counterpart of Babylon next to Akkad". ABC — By around the 19th century BC , much of southern Mesopotamia was occupied by Amorites , nomadic tribes from the northern Levant who were Northwest Semitic speakers, unlike the native Akkadians of southern Mesopotamia and Assyria , who spoke East Semitic.

The Amorites at first did not practice agriculture like more advanced Mesopotamians, preferring a semi-nomadic lifestyle, herding sheep.

Over time, Amorite grain merchants rose to prominence and established their own independent dynasties in several south Mesopotamian city-states, most notably Isin , Larsa , Eshnunna , Lagash , and later, founding Babylon as a state.

According to a Babylonian date list, Amorite [a] rule in Babylon began c. Sumu-la-El , whose dates may be concurrent with those of Sumu-abum, is usually given as the progenitor of the First Babylonian dynasty.

Both are credited with building the walls of Babylon. In any case, the records describe Sumu-la-El's military successes establishing a regional sphere of influence for Babylon.

Babylon was initially a minor city-state, and controlled little surrounding territory; its first four Amorite rulers did not assume the title of king.

The older and more powerful states of Assyria , Elam , Isin , and Larsa overshadowed Babylon until it became the capital of Hammurabi 's short lived empire about a century later.

Hammurabi r. Hammurabi also invaded and conquered Elam to the east, and the kingdoms of Mari and Ebla to the northwest.

After a protracted struggle with the powerful Assyrian king Ishme-Dagan of the Old Assyrian Empire , he forced his successor to pay tribute late in his reign, spreading Babylonian power to Assyria's Hattian and Hurrian colonies in Asia Minor.

After the reign of Hammurabi, the whole of southern Mesopotamia came to be known as Babylonia , whereas the north had already coalesced centuries before into Assyria.

From this time, Babylon supplanted Nippur and Eridu as the major religious centers of southern Mesopotamia. Hammurabi's empire destabilized after his death.

Assyrians defeated and drove out the Babylonians and Amorites. The far south of Mesopotamia broke away, forming the native Sealand Dynasty , and the Elamites appropriated territory in eastern Mesopotamia.

The Amorite dynasty remained in power in Babylon, which again became a small city state. Texts from Old Babylon often include references to Shamash , the sun-god of Sippar, treated as a supreme deity, and Marduk , considered as his son.

Marduk was later elevated to a higher status and Shamash lowered, perhaps reflecting Babylon's rising political power [12].

The city was renamed Karanduniash during this period. Kassite Babylon eventually became subject to the Middle Assyrian Empire — BC to the north, and Elam to the east, with both powers vying for control of the city.

An Akkadian south Mesopotamian dynasty then ruled for the first time. However, Babylon remained weak and subject to domination by Assyria. Its ineffectual native kings were unable to prevent new waves of foreign West Semitic settlers from the deserts of the Levant, including the Arameans and Suteans in the 11th century BC, and finally the Chaldeans in the 9th century BC, entering and appropriating areas of Babylonia for themselves.

The Arameans briefly ruled in Babylon during the late 11th century BC. During the reign of Sennacherib of Assyria, Babylonia was in a constant state of revolt, led by a chieftain named Merodach-Baladan , in alliance with the Elamites , and suppressed only by the complete destruction of the city of Babylon.

Destruction of the religious center shocked many, and the subsequent murder of Sennacherib by two of his own sons while praying to the god Nisroch was considered an act of atonement.

Consequently, his successor Esarhaddon hastened to rebuild the old city and make it his residence during part of the year. Shamash-shum-ukin enlisted the help of other peoples against to Assyria, including Elam , Persia , Chaldeans , and Suteans of southern Mesopotamia, and the Canaanites and Arabs dwelling in the deserts south of Mesopotamia.

Once again, Babylon was besieged by the Assyrians, starved into surrender and its allies were defeated. Ashurbanipal celebrated a "service of reconciliation", but did not venture to "take the hands" of Bel.

An Assyrian governor named Kandalanu was appointed as ruler of the city. Ashurbanipal did collect texts from Babylon for inclusion in his extensive library at Ninevah.

After the death of Ashurbanipal, the Assyrian empire destabilized due to a series of internal civil wars throughout the reigns of Assyrian kings Ashur-etil-ilani , Sin-shumu-lishir and Sinsharishkun.

Eventually Babylon, like many other parts of the near east, took advantage of the chaos within Assyria to free itself from Assyrian rule.

In the subsequent overthrow of the Assyrian Empire by an alliance of peoples, the Babylonians saw another example of divine vengeance.

Babylon thus became the capital of the Neo-Babylonian sometimes and possibly erroneously called the Chaldean or Caldanian Empire.

Nebuchadnezzar is also credited with the construction of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon —one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World —said to have been built for his homesick wife Amyitis.

Whether the gardens actually existed is a matter of dispute. German archaeologist Robert Koldewey speculated that he had discovered its foundations, but many historians disagree about the location.

Stephanie Dalley has argued that the hanging gardens were actually located in the Assyrian capital, Nineveh. Nebuchadnezzar is also notoriously associated with the Babylonian exile of the Jews, the result of an imperial technique of pacification, used also by the Assyrians, in which ethnic groups in conquered areas were deported en masse to the capital.

The defeat was also recorded in the Babylonian Chronicles. Babylon's walls were considered impenetrable. The only way into the city was through one of its many gates or through the Euphrates River.

Metal grates were installed underwater, allowing the river to flow through the city walls while preventing intrusion. The Persians devised a plan to enter the city via the river.

During a Babylonian national feast, Cyrus' troops upstream diverted the Euphrates River, allowing Cyrus' soldiers to enter the city through the lowered water.

The Persian army conquered the outlying areas of the city while the majority of Babylonians at the city center were unaware of the breach.

The account was elaborated upon by Herodotus [37] [20] and is also mentioned in parts of the Hebrew Bible. He also writes that the Babylonians wear turbans and perfume and bury their dead in honey, that they practice ritual prostitution, and that three tribes among them eat nothing but fish.

The hundred gates can be considered a reference to Homer , and following the pronouncement of Archibald Henry Sayce in , Herodotus' account of Babylon has largely been considered to represent Greek folklore rather than an authentic voyage to Babylon.

However, recently, Dalley and others have suggested taking Herodotus' account seriously. According to 2 Chronicles 36 of the Hebrew Bible , Cyrus later issued a decree permitting captive people, including the Jews , to return to their own lands.

Text found on the Cyrus Cylinder has traditionally been seen by biblical scholars as corroborative evidence of this policy, although the interpretation is disputed because the text only identifies Mesopotamian sanctuaries but makes no mention of Jews, Jerusalem, or Judea.

Under Cyrus and the subsequent Persian king Darius I , Babylon became the capital city of the 9th Satrapy Babylonia in the south and Athura in the north , as well as a center of learning and scientific advancement.

In Achaemenid Persia, the ancient Babylonian arts of astronomy and mathematics were revitalized, and Babylonian scholars completed maps of constellations.

The city became the administrative capital of the Persian Empire and remained prominent for over two centuries. Many important archaeological discoveries have been made that can provide a better understanding of that era.

The early Persian kings had attempted to maintain the religious ceremonies of Marduk , but by the reign of Darius III , over-taxation and the strain of numerous wars led to a deterioration of Babylon's main shrines and canals, and the destabilization of the surrounding region.

Under Alexander, Babylon again flourished as a center of learning and commerce. The constant turmoil virtually emptied the city of Babylon.

With this deportation, Babylon became insignificant as a city, although more than a century later, sacrifices were still performed in its old sanctuary.

It maintained its own culture and people, who spoke varieties of Aramaic , and who continued to refer to their homeland as Babylon.

Examples of their culture are found in the Babylonian Talmud , the Gnostic Mandaean religion, Eastern Rite Christianity and the religion of the philosopher Mani.

In the mid-7th century, Mesopotamia was invaded and settled by the expanding Muslim Empire, and a period of Islamization followed.

Babylon was dissolved as a province and Aramaic and Church of the East Christianity eventually became marginalized.

Ibn Hauqal mentions a small village called Babel in the tenth century; subsequent travelers describe only ruins. Babylon is mentioned in medieval Arabic writings as a source of bricks, [19] said to have been used in cities from Baghdad to Basra.

European travelers in many cases could not discover the city's location, or mistook Fallujah for it. Benjamin of Tudela , a 12th-century traveller, mentions Babylon but it is not clear if he went there.

Others referred to Baghdad as Babylon or New Babylon and described various structures encountered in the region as the Tower of Babel.

Claudius J. Rich , Memoir on the Ruins of Babylon , pp. The eighteenth century saw an increasing flow of travelers to Babylon, including Carsten Niebuhr and Pierre-Joseph de Beauchamp , as well as measurements of its latitude.

Beauchamp's memoir, published in English translation in , provoked the British East India Company to direct its agents in Baghdad and Basra to acquire Mesopotamian relics for shipment to London.

Austen Henry Layard made some soundings during a brief visit in before abandoning the site. However, many of the fruits of their work were lost when a raft containing over 40 crates of artifacts sank into the Tigris river.

Henry Rawlinson and George Smith worked there briefly in The next excavation was conducted by Hormuzd Rassam on behalf of the British Museum. Work began in , continuing until , and was prompted by widespread looting of the site.

Using industrial scale digging in search of artifacts, Rassam recovered a large quantity of cuneiform tablets and other finds. The zealous excavation methods, common at the time, caused significant damage to the archaeological context.

A team from the German Oriental Society led by Robert Koldewey conducted the first scientific archaeological excavations at Babylon.

The work was conducted daily from until Primary efforts of the dig involved the temple of Marduk and the processional way leading up to it, as well as the city wall.

Lenzen in and Hansjörg Schmid in Lenzen's work dealt primarily with the Hellenistic theatre, and Schmid focused on the temple ziggurat Etemenanki.

Additional work in — concentrated on the area surrounding the Ishara and Ninurta temples in the Shu-Anna city-quarter of Babylon.

During the restoration efforts in Babylon, the Iraqi State Organization for Antiquities and Heritage conducted extensive research, excavation and clearing, but wider publication of these archaeological activities has been limited.

The site of Babylon has been a cultural asset to Iraq since the creation of the modern Iraqi state in Babylonian images periodically appear on Iraqi postcards and stamps.

In the s, a replica of the Ishtar Gate and a reconstruction of Ninmakh Temple were built on site. On 14 February , the Ba'athist government of Iraq under Saddam Hussein began the "Archaeological Restoration of Babylon Project": reconstructing features of the ancient city atop its ruins.

These features included the Southern Palace of Nebuchandnezzar, with rooms, five courtyards, and a meter entrance arch. The project also reinforced the Processional Way, the Lion of Babylon , and an amphitheater constructed in the city's Hellenistic era.

In the government minted a set of seven coins displaying iconic features of Babylon. A Babylon International Festival was held in September , and annually thereafter until excepting and , to showcase this work.

Proposed reconstruction of the Hanging Gardens and the great ziggurat never took place. Hussein installed a portrait of himself and Nebuchadnezzar at the entrance to the ruins and inscribed his name on many of the bricks, in imitation of Nebuchadnezzar.

One frequent inscription reads: "This was built by Saddam Hussein, son of Nebuchadnezzar, to glorify Iraq". These bricks became sought after as collectors' items after Hussein's downfall.

When the Gulf War ended, Hussein wanted to build a modern palace called Saddam Hill over some of the old ruins, in the pyramidal style of a ziggurat.

In , he intended the construction of a cable car line over Babylon, but plans were halted by the invasion of Iraq.

Following the invasion of Iraq , the area around Babylon came under the control of US troops, before being handed over to Polish forces in September Conway of the I Marine Expeditionary Force were criticized for building the military base "Camp Alpha", with a helipad and other facilities on ancient Babylonian ruins during the Iraq War.

US forces have occupied the site for some time and have caused irreparable damage to the archaeological record. John Curtis described how parts of the archaeological site were levelled to create a landing area for helicopters, and parking lots for heavy vehicles.

Curtis wrote of the occupation forces:. They caused substantial damage to the Ishtar Gate, one of the most famous monuments from antiquity [ A US Military spokesman claimed that engineering operations were discussed with the "head of the Babylon museum".

In April , Colonel John Coleman, former Chief of Staff for the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, offered to issue an apology for the damage done by military personnel under his command.

However, he also claimed that the US presence had deterred far greater damage by other looters. Ein MIG Unternehmen. Bildergalerie von Babylon in Fürth.

In May , the provincial government of Babil reopened the site to tourists, but not many have come as yet.

An oil pipeline runs through an outer wall of the city. Before modern archaeological excavations in Mesopotamia, the appearance of Babylon was largely a mystery, and typically envisioned by Western artists as a hybrid between ancient Egyptian, classical Greek, and contemporary Ottoman culture.

Due to Babylon's historical significance as well as references to it in the Bible , the word "Babylon" in various languages has acquired a generic meaning of a large, bustling diverse city.

Examples include:. In the Book of Genesis Genesis , Babel Babylon is described as founded by Nimrod along with Uruk , Akkad and perhaps Calneh —all of them in Shinar "Calneh" is now sometimes translated not as a proper name but as the phrase "all of them".

Another story is given in Genesis 11, which describes a united human race, speaking one language, migrating to Shinar to establish a city and tower—the Tower of Babel.

God halts construction of the tower by scattering humanity across the earth and confusing their communication so they are unable to understand each other in the same language.

Babylon appears throughout the Hebrew Bible , including several prophecies and in descriptions of the destruction of Jerusalem and subsequent Babylonian captivity , most of which are found in the Book of Daniel.

These include the episode of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego , and Belshazzar's feast. Consequently, in Jewish tradition, Babylon symbolizes an oppressor against which righteous believers must struggle [ citation needed ].

In Christianity , Babylon symbolizes worldliness and evil. Nebuchadnezzar II , sometimes conflated with Nabonidus , appears as the foremost ruler in this narrative.

Wir haben mit 12 Konzerten rund 1. Wenn man die Zaungäste mitzählt, noch einige mehr ;- Und, wenn Corona irgend etwas Gutes hat, dann den Umstand, dass die Menschen handgemachte, mit Liebe und frischen Zutaten zubereitete Livemusik wieder mehr zu schätzen wissen.

Auch dafür nochmal ein herzliches Dankeschön! Demnächst steht die dunkle Jahreszeit an. Wir sind aktuell am Überlegen, ob und wie - nein "ob" ist gar keine Frage - "wie" und "wo" wir auch im Winter Jazzveranstaltungen anbieten können.

Wir sind für jeden Hinweis auf geeignete Lokalitäten dankbar! Sobald sich da Konkretes abzeichnet, werden wir euch hier und auf Facebook informieren.

Nachdem durch den CovidLockdown unsere gesamte Planung für den Bach 'runter ging, können wir jetzt wieder starten. Die Bigbands haben wir leider aus dem Programm genommen und versucht, die frei gewordenen Termine an die Bands zu vergeben, die bisher ausfallen mussten.
