The ruined city in Mesopotamia, on the Euphrates river. It was firstly mentioned at the end of the third millennium B.C. At the beginning of the second millennium the city developed into the capital of Babylonia and the cultural center of the entire Near Eastern world. The Hammurabi's reign, around 1700 B.C., is based on the importance of the god Marduk, who was revered throughout the Near East. The city experienced its biggest growth under Nabopolassar (626-605 B.C.) and Nebuchadrezzar II (605-562 B.C.).

The Babylonian art is represented by just a few works. Basalt and marble reliefs as well as diverse cylinder seals have been retained. The lion from the Processional Way at the Ischtar Gate in Babylon are now to be found in the Louvre in Paris.
