For gods in mythology, see Igigi.

Igigi, according to the Sumerian King List, was one of four rivals (the others being Ilulu, Imi, and Nanum) vying to be king of the Akkadian Empire during a three-year period following the death of Shar-kali-sharri.[1] This chaotic period came to an end when Dudu consolidated his power over the realm.
