Caption: Map of Mesopotamia. Computer artwork of markings on a stone tablet showing a map of Mesopotamia. The stone tablet dates from between 700 and 500 BC and is from Sippar in southern Iraq. The ancient city of Babylon is the rectangle located at the centre of the map. Cuneiform script elsewhere on the tablet also mentions Assyria and Elam. The Mesopotamian world is surrounded by a circular waterway labelled 'salt-sea'. Triangular regions, or islands, beyond the sea were thought to be home to mythical creatures. Mesopotamia refers to a region between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in what is now Iraq. The stone tablet is kept in the British Museum.
