Ebla, Tell Mardikh, was one of the earliest kingdoms in Syria. The site is a tell located about 55 km southwest of Aleppo near the village of Mardikh. Ebla was an important center throughout the third millennium BC and in the first half of the second millennium BC.

The site is famous for its cuneiform tablets, since an archive of about 20,000 tablets dated to around 2350 BC was discovered there.
