Chaldea


Chaldea was originally a small territory in southern Babylonia at the head of the Persian Gulf. But later after the Neo-Babylonian empire of Nebuchadnezzar II (605-532 BCE) the term practically encompassed all the territory north of Hit southward to the Gulf. Some think Chaldea, original small territory, was the origin of the Chaldeans.
