Pre-Sargonic Akkad[ edit ] The Akkadian Empire takes its name from the region and the city of Akkad, both of which were localized in the general confluence area of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Although the city of Akkad has not yet been identified on the ground, it is known from various textual sources.
Among these is at least one text predating the reign of Sargon. Together with the fact that the name Akkad is of non- Akkadian origin, this suggests that the city of Akkad may have already been occupied in pre-Sargonic times.
The earliest records in the Akkadian language date to the time of Sargon. Sargon was claimed to be the son of La'ibum or Itti-Bel, a humble gardener, and possibly a hieroduleor priestess to Ishtar or Inanna.
One legend related to Sargon in Assyrian times says that My mother was a changeling, my father I knew not.

She set me in a basket of rushes, with bitumen she sealed my lid. She cast me into the river which rose not over me.

Displacing Ur-Zababa, Sargon was crowned king, and he entered upon a career of foreign conquest. He consolidated his dominion over his territories by replacing the earlier opposing rulers with noble citizens of Akkad, his native city where loyalty would thus be ensured.
This consolidation of the city-states of Sumer and Akkad reflected the growing economic and political power of Mesopotamia. The empire's breadbasket was the rain-fed agricultural system of Assyria and a chain of fortresses was built to control the imperial wheat production.
Images of Sargon were erected on the shores of the Mediterranean, in token of his victories, and cities and palaces were built at home with the spoils of the conquered lands. Contract tablets have been found dated in the years of the campaigns against Canaan and against Sarlakking of Gutium.
Some of the earliest historiographic texts ABC 19, 20 suggest he rebuilt the city of Babylon Bab-ilu in its new location near Akkad.
He called himself "The anointed priest of Anu " and "the great ensi of Enlil " and his daughter, Enheduannawas installed as priestess to Nanna at the temple in Ur.
