Caption: Babylon. Artwork of the city of Babylon in Mesopotamia. Babylon, located on the Euphrates river (lower left), was one of the most important cities of the ancient world and was capital of the Babylonian empire of the 2nd and 1st millennia BC. At upper left is a ziggurat, a terraced or stepped pyramid used as a temple tower. The most famous ziggurat associated with Babylon was the Etemenanki, dedicated to the god Marduk. It is thought that the Etemenanki inspired the story of the Tower of Babel.
