According to the Sumerian King List, Zambīia reigned for 3 years. He was a contemporary of Sin-iqišam king of Larsa, whose fifth and final year-name celebrates his victory over Zambīia: “year the army of (the land of) Elam (and Zambīia (the king of Isin),) was/were defeated by arms,” suggesting a confederation between Isin and Elam against Larsa. The city of Nippur was hotly contested between the city-states. If Zambīia survived this battle, he may have possibly gone on to be contemporary with Sin-iqišam’s successors, Ṣilli-Adad and Warad-Sin.

A single inscription is known for this king, on cone fragments, which reads:

Zambīia, the shepherd who reveres Nippur, farmer who brings tall flax and grain for Duranki, true provider, who fills the courtyard of the Egalmaḫ with abundant things, king of Isin, king of the land of Sumer and Akkad, spouse chosen by the goddess Inanna, beloved of the god Enlil and the goddess Ninisina, built the great wall of Isin. The name of that wall is “Zambīia is the beloved of the goddess Ištar”.

A votive dedication to the goddess Nanše on behalf of Zambīia was copied from an inscription on a bronze buck.
