Calneh

CALNEH (kăl'ne*ch). One of the four cities—including also Babel, Erech (whence “Iraq”), and Akkad—that were founded by Nimrod in the third generation after the Flood (Gen.10.10). It was in the land of Shinar in the southern part of Mesopotamia. It is not identified, but Kulunu and Nippur have been suggested.
