    The year in which King Rim-Anum, the forces of the land of Emutbalum, the armies of Eshnunna, Isin and Kazallu, as if all together with him, having presented themselves at Uruk for war, inflicted a defeat upon their troops. Since time immemorial Uruk had never experienced such a dust storm raised by a foreign army, but after the dust storm settled, he slaughtered all of them and by his power ejected them all from the homeland.
