    * Sinshum Lishir *


    سین شوم لی شیر

    Sinshum Lishir was a usurper king of a part of the Assyrian empire in 626. Sinshum Lishir first shows up in Assyrian sources as the general of Ashur Etil Ilani. It seems that he later tried to take kingship for himself. Sinshum Lishir toppled Etil Ilani with the help of Nabo Pulassar. He is credited of having reigned one year by the Uruk king list, preceding Sin-shar-ishkun. His first year was attested in texts from Babylonian cities Babel, Nippur, and Ru'a. Because we only know about his first year it is not likely that his reign lasted much longer. Sin-shumu-lishir never controlled all of the Assyrian empire and most likely only a part of Babylonia. His short reign must have taken place in 626 because before that year Kandalanu reigned over his attested cities and after that Nabopolassar and Sinsharishkun.
