This research identified the date of each of the three layers discovered in the building of the city of pikasi (Tell Abu Antek) located 50 km south of Babylon after the varied opinions on the determination of those dates. We basely depended on the review of all the dated texts which discovered during the second and third seasons and install their provenance, especially those discovered in the third layer, which was entirely burnt. As a result of that review, we were able to determine the exact date of the three layers, which were as follows: The third layer (the oldest) dating back to the first eight years of the reign of Samsu - iluna king of Babylon and destroyed by fire after the revolution of Rim-sin II , the second layer (with its two floors) starting from the year 10th of the reign of Samsu – iluna until the end of his reign, and the first layer from the beginning of the reign of Abi – eshukh until year 23 of his reign.
