It seems to me that Babylonians counted the day beginning at sunset. (This has some practical advantages for astronomers, like the date not changing in the middle of the night). That would suggest a good unit for 24-hour kinds of effects.

Dividing the day into the realm of Shamash and the realm of Sīn, with nothing left out, sounds like a good idea.

Definitely develop the idea of prophetic dreams! They are very Mesopotamian, even more so for a moon god.
