Ammi-Saduqa (or Ammisaduqa, Ammizaduga) was a king (ca. 1646-1626 BC according to the Middle Chronology dating, and ca.1582-1562 according to the Short Chronology) of the First Dynasty of Babylon. Some 21 year-names survive for his reign, including the first 17. The names indicate that these years were fairly peaceful ones for the kingdom of Ammi-Saduqa, who was primarily engaged in enriching and enlarging the temples, and a few other building projects, such as building a wall at the mouth of the Euphrates in his 11th regnal year.[1]
