Marduk-zēr?-[...] (1045-1034 BC)

The name of the penultimate ruler of the Second Dynasty of Isin [] is only partly preserved in Babylonian King List A []. Although he reportedly ruled for as long as twelve years, no further sources for his reign are attested, and it can therefore not be established if he was related to his predecessor Marduk-aḫḫē-erība [] and/or his successor Nabû-šumu-libūr [].
