Chaldaea (Kaldu/Kardu/Kasdu)

Presumably the lands of the northern Mesopotamian basin near to the place where Noah's ark came to rest.
In the biblical tradition Chaldaea in the land of Shinar is where Abraham was born in the town of Ur, but where the Chaldeans settled much later than the lifetime of Abraham.
