DYNASTY OF E
(C. 979–647 B.C.)
   Little-known Babylonian dynasty from a time when tribal unrest, famine, and general disorder characterized Mesopotamian history. Most kingsruled only for a few years at the time, and Assyria dominated the political fate of the country, insofar as most kings occupied the throne at the behest of Assyrian rulers if they did not proclaim themselves direct rulers of Babylonia as did Tiglath-pileser III, Sargon II, and Esarhaddon.
