GUNGUNUM
(reigned 1932–1906 B.C.)
   King of Larsa (“whose name sounds like the beat of a battledrum,” according to Georges Roux). He attacked the kingdom of Isin, taking Ur and with it control over access to the Persian Gulf, and gradually extended his influence in southern Mesopotamia to the detriment of Isin.
