Amman English: /əˈmɑːn/; Arabic: عَمّان‎ ʻammān pronounced [ʕamːaːn] is the capital and largest city of Jordan and the country`s economic, political and cultural centre.[5] With a population of 4,007,526, Amman is the largest city in the Levant region and the sixth-largest city in the Arab world.[6] The earliest evidence of settlement in Amman is in a Neolithic site known as `Ain Ghazal, where some of the oldest human statues ever found dating to 7250 BC were uncovered. During the Iron Age, the city was known as Ammon, home to the Kingdom of the Ammonites. It was named Philadelphia during its Greek and Roman periods, and was finally called Amman during the Islamic period. For much of the early and middle Islamic periods 7th–14th centuries, it served as a center for the Balqa district of Syria.
