Uruk – 3000 BC

The Cleveland Public Library contains an ancient peace treaty cone from Uruk/Erech, and the archaeologist’s note states “Erech is the city mentioned in the Biblical book of Genesis 10:10”

Genesis 10:8-10 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. 9He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. 10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar
