Ebla in the third millennium BC The name "Ebla" means "White Rock", and refers to the limestone outcrop on which the city was built.

Ebla in the second millennium BC Several centuries after its destruction by the Akkadians, Ebla managed to recover some of its importance, and had a second apogee lasting from about 1850 to 1600 BC.

Because the name "Ebla" was mentioned twice in the inscription, Professor Pettinato postulated that Tell Mardikh, was identical to the ancient Ebla - a place mentioned obscurely in Akkadian and Assyrian records.
From those tablets the archeologists concluded that Ebla was a flourishing kingdom in the third millennium B.C. that was apparently a commercial and political rival to the powerful states of Mesopotamia.
Ebla also seems to have traded with civilizations in Anatolia, Palestina and western Iran, made treaties with its neighbors, and conquered the powerful city-state of Mari in Mesopotamia.
