As far as everybody is concerned, Hebrew the “Ur of the Chaldeans” (אור כשדים, “Uwr Kas-deem”), of the Bible is the Sumerian Urim and the Akkadian Uru, that is, the Tell el-Muqayyar (“mound of that which is built of bitumen”), at 30°57’40″N, 46° 6’20″E. However, some people reject the identification of Ur with Urim, mostly due to the fact there were Urs all around the Near East. However, the qualifier, “of the Chaldeans”, which the word “Kasdim” definitely refers to, proves Ur was located in-where else?-Chaldea (the Chaldeans were not Arameans, and were first mentioned in the marshes of Sealand)! The Bible itself explicitly disproves a W. of the Euphrates Ur by saying that Harran was on the road to Canaan from Ur. Joshua 24:2-3, 14 most definitively proves Ur was to the east of the Euphrates. The “linguistic difficulty” of the missing last vowel is paralleled by the example of the name of Tiglath-Pileser III (Tukultī-apil-Ešarra), or Pul (Pulu, Greek Poros).
