Brutus, of course the tower of Babel is not a ziggurat, at least not any unsepecific of them. At least intent wouldn't be the common one, ziggurats were typically (it is assumed) in hommage of the gods or god -even if in imitation of its creative force- and the Babel tower in challenge to its preeminence... I would have to read more to discern what exactly the shape was as described.

In the end the question of carolyn is more than anything identifying the target period and then do a bit of search for the architectures in that period ... that's the gist of my answer, for I even bet there is a lot of contreversia about the dates corresponding for any given remains, or cities named in written records.
