Tell Agrab (or Aqrab) is a tell or settlement mound 15 miles (24 km) east of Eshnunna in the Diyala region.The site of Tell Agrab is encompased by a 500 by 600 metres (1,600 by 2,000 ft) rectangle with a height of around 12 metres (39 ft). Though it had been subject to illegal digging earlier, the site was officially excavated in 1936 and 1937 by a team from the Oriental Institute of Chicago which was also working at Eshnunna, Khafajah and Tell Ishchali during that time. The dig was led by Seton Hall. The primary excavation effort was on the large Early Dynastic temple, which was dedicated to Shara according to a bowl inscription.
