This finely made clay map of Babylon shows the Tuba area in Babylon, two gateways, a section of the city inner wall, and a gateway fed by the Rover Euphrates. The reverse side of the tablet gives accurate measurements for the city walls. Probably from Babylon, Southern Mesopotamia, Iraq. Circa 600-500 BCE. (The British Museum, Iraq)
