SHUTRUK-NAHHUNTE I
(reigned C. 1185–1155 B.C.)
   Elamite king, probably the founder of a dynasty known as the Shutrukides. Having consolidated his rule over Elam, he launched a carefully prepared attack against Babylonia. He took Sippar, Kish, and Babylon, deposed the last Kassite king Zababa-shum-iddina, and imposed heavy tribute on the population. He returned to Elam with enormous booty, which included several ancient monuments, such as the stele with Hammurabi’s laws and statues of Akkadian kings. In Babylon, he appointed his own son Kudur-Nahhunte as king.
