 URUK: An apology
I apologize for not including Uruk in my tirade the other day.  I
couldn't find the exact response on my news server but to the person who
asked me about my remark and why I did not include Uruk with the other
ancient cities like Ur, Akkad, Nineveh, Nippur, etc., I simply forgot to
include it.  I do agree with you, it was one of the most glorious cities.

Thanks for the scholarly remark.

Salam,
I read once that the word 'Iraq' came from 'Uruk' !
Can anybody elaborate on this ?

Sam.

Hi Sam:

 I hope you are doing fine,

 The ancient Sumerian city of Uruk lies 156 mi southeast of Baghdad,
 Iraq.

 First settled  by the prehistoric inhabitants of Mesopotamia, the
 city developed around the two sacred centers of Kullab and Eanna,
 which have yielded such evidence of early Sumerian civilization as
 monumental temples (at Eanna) decorated with cone mosaics, sophisticated
 sculpture, glyptic art, and some examples of the first, pictographic,
 writing.

 Uruk was subject to the Ur empire and to successive kings of
 Babylonia and Assyria, most of whom maintained its temples.

Salam,
