In Sin-Muballit's 13th year, he repelled the army of Ur, which had invaded the territory of Babylon. In the 17th year of his reign, Sin-Muballit took possession of the city of Isin and his power grew steadily over time as evidenced by his building and fortifying a number of fortresses.
There exists disagreement over the dating of the events of the first dynasty. The short chronology used in this article is the one most commonly used today by scholars. The middle chronology was until recently the preferred chronology and places events 64 years earlier than given here. There also exists a long chronology which places events 120 years earlier than given here. See Chronology of the Ancient Near East for details.
