The Assyrian King List provides a sequence of five kings with short reigns purported to be father-son successions, leading Landsberger to suggest that Labaj(j)a, Šarma-Adad I and IB.TAR.Sîn may have been brothers of Bēlu-bāni rather than his descendants. It reports him as the son of Šarma-Adad I. He is omitted from the list on another fragment.[i 2] He is called LIK.KUD-Šamaš on the Synchronistic King List[i 3] which gives his Babylonian counterpart as mDIŠ+U-EN (reading unknown), an unidentified person inserted between the reigns of Gulkišar and his son Pešgaldarameš of the Sealand Dynasty.
He was succeeded by Bazaj(j)a, son of Bēlu-bāni.
