Nanum or Nanium, according to the Sumerian King List, was one of four rivals (the others being Ilulu, Igigi, and Imi) vying to be king of the Akkadian Empire during a three-year period following the death of Shar-kali-sharri.[1] This chaotic period came to an end when Dudu consolidated his power over the realm.
