In Mesopotamia, those most sought after for servitude are the men and women from the mountains to the north and northeast, the regions of Urartu and Lullu.

In 2340–2316 BCE Sumer, which had been united under Lugalzagesi, fell to the armies of King Sargon. Sargon was not a member of one of the Sumerian dynastic families but came from a northern Semitic tribe. He was of humble origins, but had achieved a position of authority in the royal court at Kish, and by 2335 BCE he had made his own capital at Agade, or Akkad, after which his empire is known as Akkadian. The two photographs on these pages show a Sumerian phalanx of infantrymen (left), a detail from the “Stela of the Vultures,” which commemorates King Eannatum’s victory over Umma, and a mosaic of a war chariot (above) carrying two warriors, trampling an enemy soldier to death, as recreated in the battle scene above.
