During this period, he re-built the city of Gabarri-Ibni, established irrigation canals, and encouraged the planting of date palms in various nearby cities. He also developed several plans for agriculture. Limestone, found in Babylon, Mesopotamia, 8th century BCE. (Istanbul Archeological Museum/Ancient Orient Museum)
