Not to be confused with the Akkadian ruler Ilulu.

Elulu is listed as the third king of the first dynasty of Ur on the Sumerian king list, which states he reigned for 25 years.

One early inscription for an "Elulu (or Elili), king of Ur" was found at nearby Eridu, stating that this king had built up the abzu ziggurat for Enki. Some scholars have further connected Elulu with the "Elilina" who was said to be the father of the later king Enshakushanna of Uruk, but this theory is uncertain, owing to chronological difficulties.
