In 2340 BCE Sargon of Akkad conquered most of the Sumerian city-states, thus ending the Sumerian period and founding the Akkadian Empire, widely regarded as the first empire in history. The Akkadians were a Semitic-speaking group who united the Semites and Sumerian speakers under one rule. The Akkadian Empire was short-lived and in 2125 BC the empire fell. Mesopotamia eventually coalesced into two distinct empires: Assyria in the north and Babylonia in the south.

This is a Sumerian macehead dating to the Early Dynastic III (2500-2330 B.C.). The macehead is inscribed with archaic Sumerian cuneiform which reads: “Mesalim, Lugal of Kish, builder of the temple of Ningirsu, established this for Ningirsu, Lugal-šag-engur was the Ensi of Lagaš.” King Mesalim of the Third Dynasty of Kish is actually missing from the Sumerian King list but appears in our records as the mediator of a border dispute between the Sumerian city-states of Lagaš and Umma.
