Battle of Arrapha
Battle of Arrapha took place in 616 BC between the Assyrian forces and the Babylonians. Babylonian king Nabopolassar succeeded by driving the Assyrians back to the Little Zab, in doing so capturing many Assyrian prisoners, horses, and chariots. The next year, Cyaxares, king of the Medes, defeated the Assyrians and conquered Arrapha.
