Isin-Larsa Period (c. 2017-1741 B.C.E.)


Part of the Old Babylonian period, the Isin-Larsa period refers to the zenith of the first dynasty of the city-state of Isin from c. 2017 B.C.E. until 1794 B.C.E., when the city-state of Larsa conquered Isin. Isin enjoyed a second “renaissance” during the Second Dynasty of Isin, from c. 1154-1027 B.C.E.
