Babylonia was an ancient state in Mesopotamia (in modern Iraq), combining the territories of Sumer and Akkad. Its capital was Babylon. The earliest mention of Babylon can be found in a tablet of the reign of Sargon of Akkad, dating back to around 2400 BC.

The city of Babylon was found on the Euphrates River about 110 kilometres south of modern Baghdad, just north of what is now the Iraqi town of al-Hillah.
