Easton's Bible Dictionary - Erech
(LXX., "Orech"), length, or Moon-town, one of the cities of Nimrod's kingdom in the plain of Shinar (Genesis 10:10 ); the Orchoe of the Greeks and Romans. It was probably the city of the Archevites, who were transplanted to Samaria by Asnapper (Ezra 4:9 ). It lay on the left bank of the Euphrates, about 120 miles south-east of Babylon, and is now represented by the mounds and ruins of Warka. It appears to have been the necropolis of the Assyrian kings, as the whole region is strewed with bricks and the remains of coffins. "Standing on the summit of the principal edifice, called the Buwarizza, a tower 200 feet square in the centre of the ruins, the beholder is struck with astonishment at the enormous accumulation of mounds and ancient relics at his feet. An irregular circle, nearly 6 miles in circumference, is defined by the traces of an earthen rampart, in some places 40 feet high."

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Erech
One of the cities of Nimrod in the land of Shinar. Genesis 10:10 . It is judged to have been the ancient Orchoe of the Greeks and Romans. It is identified with extensive ruins at Warka, 31 30' N, 45 40' E . Its original Accadian name was UNU, UNUG, or UNUGA;the Babylonians and Assyrians called it URUKor ARKU; hence the Hebrew name Erech, and the Arab Warka. By the Accadians it was also styled 'the heavenly grove,' 'the heavenly resting place,' 'the seven enclosures,' etc. The Babylonians thought much of the city, and the ruins show that it had large and elegant buildings.

"The beginning of Nimrod's kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh in the land of Shinar." Orchoe, 82 miles S., 43 E. of Babylon, now Warka; in the land of Shinar.
