There is a little record of the early
history of the city of Babylon. Its
foundations were laid, it Is supposed,
by Nimrod, great grandson of Naoh,
not long after the dispersion of Babel,
It stood on both sides of the river
Euphrates, on an even and extensive
plain. It was surrounded by a wall,
incredible Var- it maj' geejn,-'of three
hundred and fifty feet m heighfctghty-
seven in thickneii, lad sixty miles' In
circumference forming an exact
square, fifteen miles on each side.
This massive wall wis made of Urpe ,
nuumiDuus uncss, no urmiy cemented,
as to render it perfectly solid. Aa
enormous ditch, lint J on both sides
with brick, and filled with water, en
compassed the city the si of which
may be nearly estimated from tht

From the gates on one side of the city
to those on the opposite side, were 50
streets one hundred and fifty feet in
width. These fifty streets, crossing
each other at right angles, divided tho
city into six hundred and seventy six
squares. The houses stood on these
squares, a short distance from each
other, facing the street.
The central parts of these numerous
squares were, laid out in gardens,
walks and yards, and occupied' for.
many other useful 'and ornamental
purposes i so that, from the many va

The river Fuphrates, or rather a
branch of it, ran directly across the?
city from north to south. A wall of
the sime thickness, and similar to
that which surrounded the city, was
built on each side nf the river, h
these walls, where the river w as inter
sected by the streets, were massy bra
zen gates. From the several streets
there were gradiat descents to the
river, which was crossed in boats.
