This map shows the political situation in Syro-Mesopotamia c. 1764 BCE. During this time, the Amorite Kings, Hammurabi of Babylon and Zimri-Lim of Mari were engaged in near-constant warfare with surrounding polities, many of whom were also predominantly Amorite. The two kings crushed powers like Eshnunna and fought back the Elamites. In 1761 BCE, Babylon is known to have taken control of Mari and its territories, and the reasons behind this are unclear to this day.
