Meaning of the baby name SARGINA.

  

SARGINA.  Or Sargon I.  An early, almost mythical Babylonian king, about the sixteenth century B.C.  He was a bastard, born at the city of Azupirani, and was exposed by his mother, probably at the command of his uncle, in a basket on the river Euphrates.  Here he was found by a husbandman named Akki, who took care of him and taught him agriculture.  After some years Sargina became the head of a race of wild or dark people, probably outlaws, by the help of whom he seized the throne of Babylonia, and founded the city of Dur-Sargina.  He built a great temple at Agane, and a palace named Ekiam-izillik, which he established as the capital of his empire, and where he founded a library, for which the great astronomical cyclopaedia, the Namar-bili, was compiled.  He fought with great success against the Elamites and Syrians.  After that he was besieged in his own capital by the Kassi, or men of all countries, whom he ultimately defeated.  The events of the rest of his reign are unknown.  He was succeeded by his son Naramsin. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
