“if it can be said that Sumerian’s contribution to civilisation was writing and that of Babylonian’s was law, then Assyrian’s gift to posterity was Libraries.” (J. K Gates ‘Guide to the use of Books and Libraries, 1962)

I mean there is a lot one could disagree (more on that in a future post 🙄) But I still really liked the sentiment when I first read it. I mean it's no denying that the amount of cuneiform tablets which survived in Nineveh is truly outstanding & have given us an insight in the lives of those long gone.

And let's face it. It's aesthetic as well!

Should check out @britishmuseum Ashurbanipal Library Project for all the information too long for this caption :) #cuneiform #ashurbanipal #mesopotamia #assyria #nineveh #britishmuseum  #ashurbanipallibrary #ashurbanipallibraryproject #ancientiraq #history #archaeology #ancientwritingsystem

(3/3) Standing two metres tall (about 6ft 7) and carved into limestone, this stele is an absolute masterpiece, breaking away from the rigid confines of previous works of Mesopotamian art to produce something more dynamic and realistic.

As well as being a masterpiece, we shouldn't forget that it is also the propaganda of an arrogant tyrant! It originally stood in the Babylonian city of Sippar, but 1000 years later the Elamites conquered the region, added their own inscription to the stele (in the top right) and took it to their capital, Susa, where it was found by French archaeologists around 3,000 years after that In 1898 AD, who took it to their capital, Paris, where it now stands in the Louvre. Much of history seems to be just a series of arrogant emperors making things, then other emperors stealing them!

(2/3) This stele, known as the 'Victory Stele of Naram-Sin' shows the king (r.2254-2218 BC) and his troops winning a battle in the Zagros mountains against the Lullubi people.
.
The victor stands centre-stage. He's much bigger than everyone else, and literally higher up than them, so you know which one he is. He holds an axe and a bow in his left arm, an arrow in his right. One Lullubi warrior, probably their ruler Satuni, stands pathetically small in front of Naram-Sin, and begs for his life, his dying comrade grasping an arrow in his neck, while the conqueror victoriously tramples on the dead (if you look closely you can see one dead man falling head first down the mountain).
.
See that nice horned helmet Naram-Sin's wearing? No, he's not on his way to a fancy dress party in a Viking costume - in ancient Mesopotamian art, if someone has horns, or a horned helmet, it means that they're a god. We know from texts of the period too that Naram-Sin claimed to be a god, apparently because the people of his city Akkad demanded he be made one. Unlike in Egypt, it wasn't normal for the people of ancient Mesopotamia to worship the reigning king as a god, so the fact that Naram-Sin claimed to be one is very interesting - was it just an arrogant display of his immense power, or a strategic decision to try and mend the cracks that were forming in the empire?

(1/3) Over 4,200 years ago, over 2,200 years before Caesar Augustus, and over 1,500 years before Ashurbanipal, this man, Naram-Sin, was the most powerful ruler the world had yet known.
.
Naram-Sin inherited what is often called the world's first empire, founded by his grandfather, the famous Sargon of Akkad. Exactly how much control this dynasty had over their 'empire' is debatable, but they claimed to hold sway over an area that stretched from Anatolia in the North to parts of the Arabian peninsula in the South, and from Iran in the East, to Cyprus in the West. To the people of ancient Mesopotamia, this constituted basically the entire known world (or at least all the bits they cared about), and so Naram-Sin claimed the title "King of the Four Corners".

#Ashurbanipal (Akkadian: Aššur-bāni-apli; Syriac: ܐܫܘܪ ܒܢܐ ܐܦܠܐ‎; 'Ashur is the creator of an heir'), also spelled Assurbanipalor Ashshurbanipal, was King of the #Neo_Assyrian Empire from 668 BC to c. 627 BC, the son of Esarhaddon and the last strong ruler of the empire, which is usually dated between 934 and 609 BC. He is famed for amassing a significant collection of cuneiformdocuments for his royal palace at Nineveh.This collection, known as the Library of Ashurbanipal, is now in the British Museum, which also holds the famous Lion Hunt of Ashurbanipal set of Assyrian palace reliefs.
The Assyrian conquest of Elam refers to the conquest of the #Elamite Kingdom in western Persia by the Neo-Assyrian Empire (911 BC-609 BC). The Elamite lands were finally ravaged beyond repair in 639 BC.

I potenti Dei mi hanno dato il potere supremo. Ho schiacciato i miei nemici e li ho fatti inchinare davanti a me. ⠀ ⠀
Tenevo forte l'arco e le mie frecce volavano attraverso la gola dei leoni. ⠀ ⠀

📜The original Old Babylonian version dates back to between 2750 and 2500 BCE but is largely incomplete, which is why the later twelve-clay tablet Akkadian version is used primarily but is filled with excerpts from the old Babylonian version where necessary. 📜The Epic of Gilgamesh was one of the most beloved stories of Mesopotamia. According to the tale, Gilgamesh is a handsome, athletic young king of Uruk city. His mother was the goddess Ninsun and his father the priest-king Lugalbanda, making Gilgamesh semi-divine. 
Gilgamesh’s arrogant cruel behavior upsets Uruk’s citizens and they cry out to the great god of heaven Anu for help with their young king. 📜The gods send a wild man, Enkidu, to challenge Gilgamesh. At first, Enkidu lives in the rural wilds, living with animals. He is partially civilized by a temple priestess, Shamhat, who seduces him and teaches him how to eat like a human being. Enkidu then heads for Uruk and meets Gilgamesh and they fight. Gilgamesh wins the fight, and he and Enkidu become the best of friends.
📜The first half of the epic concerns the adventures of Gilgamesh and Enkidu. They conquer and kill the monster Humbaba, who the gods had set over the Forest of Cedar. Gilgamesh rejects Ishtar/Inanna when she tries to seduce him. In revenge, Ishtar asks the god Enlil for the Bull of Heaven, with which to attack Gilgamesh. However, Gilgamesh and Enkidu kill the Bull, which angers all the gods. The gods decide to punish Gilgamesh by the death of Enkidu.
📜The second half of the epic has Gilgamesh searching for immortality as he deeply mourns Enkidu’s death and worries about his own. He searches for Utnapishtim, an immortal man who survived the Great Flood, a precursor to the Biblical Noah. Gilgamesh finally finds Utnapishtim, who tells him to accept his mortality as he cannot change it. Gilgamesh then returns to Uruk and becomes a good king. He ruled for 126 years, according to the Sumerian King List.

#Repost @annunakihistory with @repostsaveapp · · ·  Statue of #Gilgamesh, University of Sydney
The Statue of Gilgamesh at the University of Sydney, Camperdown, was created by Lewis Batros on commission from the #Assyrian community and unveiled in 2000. The 2.5m statue depicts Gilgamesh, an ancient #Sumerian king of the city-state of #Uruk whose legendary exploits are told in the Epic of Gilgamesh, an #Akkadian epic poem written during the late second millennium BC, based on much earlier material. Gilgamesh was a king of Uruk in the land of #Sumer, #Mesopotamia. Gilgamesh is described as a demigod of superhuman strength, as he was two-thirds God from his mother, #Ninsun, and one-third human from his father, the former king, #Lugalbunda. Gilgamesh built the city walls of Uruk to defend his people. Gilgamesh fought the demon #Humbaba (or Huwawa), along with wild man #Enkidu and brought his head back to Uruk on a raft. The pair also defeated the Bull of Heaven sent by the furious goddess #Ishtar. These conquered beasts can be linked to the creature in the statue as a representation of Gilgamesh's strength and power. Gilgamesh is seen as a worldly-wise, cultured king and protector who is at the centre of human society. The statue was erected to celebrate the might and power of Gilgamesh and commemorate his achievements as a protector and king. Situated with the Statue of Gilgamesh is a bronze plaque with an inscription of the story of Gilgamesh, which reads:
Gilgamesh, Sumerian King of Uruk during the third millennium BC, is part god and part man. He sets out on a quest to seek immortality. In the source of his quest, he finds compassion, friendship, courage, love, and peace. In the 19th century, Sir Austen Henry Layard found clay tablets recounting The Epic of Gilgamesh in #Ashurbanipal's 8th century BC library at #Nineveh. This epic, one of the oldest written stories, is the basis of many myths, legends, and tales, including modern ones. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Gilgamesh,_University_of_Sydney?fbclid=IwAR3EN2CfiUSPNagBPfDkeOTtUkBRwosCNjT9-Qsxn5KN1kKVowNm1tosNDg

Title: Ashurbanipal Library (Read more @ British Museum www.britishmuseum.org)
Ashurbanipal’s Library is one of the most important archaeological discoveries ever made. The ‘Library of Ashurbanipal’ is the name given to a collection of over 30,000 clay tablets and fragments inscribed with cuneiform – a type of writing used in Mesopotamia (ancient Iraq). They were excavated in a series of digs from the 1840s through to the 1930s, and form the remains of the Assyrian royal collections of scholarly literature and archives.

العنوان: مكتبة آشوربانيبال (أقرأ المزيد على موقع المتحف البريطاني www.britishmuseum.org)
تعد مكتبة آشوربانيبال واحدة من أهم الاكتشافات الأثرية التي تمت على الإطلاق. "مكتبة آشوربانيبال" هي الاسم الذي يطلق على مجموعة تضم أكثر من 30،000 لوح طيني وشظايا منقوش عليها بالمسمارية - نوع من الكتابة المستخدمة في بلاد ما بين النهرين (العراق القديم). تم التنقيب فيها في سلسلة من الحفريات من أربعينيات القرن التاسع عشر وحتى الثلاثينيات من القرن العشرين، وشكلت بقايا المجموعات الملكية الآشورية من الأدب والمحفوظات العلمية.

Title: Ashurbanipal Library (Read more British Museum www.britishmuseum.org)
Ashurbanipal’s Library is one of the most important archaeological discoveries ever made. The ‘Library of Ashurbanipal’ is the name given to a collection of over 30,000 clay tablets and fragments inscribed with cuneiform – a type of writing used in Mesopotamia (ancient Iraq). They were excavated in a series of digs from the 1840s through to the 1930s, and form the remains of the Assyrian royal collections of scholarly literature and archives.

MESOPOTAMIAN MYTHOLOGY.

Marduk the head of all Mesopotamian Gods was not the head of The Gods, Marduk had equal powers to all other Gods until Tiamat the evil Goddes wanted to take over all the other gods, Tiamat was the most powerful than all so the other gods of Mesopotamia had a meeting to convince Marduk to fight Tiamat because he was the only that could face Tiamat's powers, Marduk said that he would agree only if he becomes the King of the Gods after he beats Tiamat and her dark influence on mesoptamia and so he did after a fight that lasted a day, human time: a year.

Some of the weapons/tools that the Assyrians and the Babylonianas invented, Assyrians did the most, we can see that almost all empires to come after the Assyrian and babylonian used the same weapons, these weapons were also used in medieval Europe, so after the fall of Mesopotamia no one could invent new shaped weapons, mesopotamians created not only for themselves but for every other empire and kingdom, they were so creative to create different shapes of weapons that no one could think of new ones to create, just awesome.

In Daniel's prophecy from the bible for the Babylonian king's dream interpretation, the sequence of empires that will rule until the coming of christ and making of his kingdom, we can see that the more you go down the statue you will see a less valuable metal but possibly a more powerful Animal/creature, there is a controversy around the iron and clay, some say it is the modern powers and others say the empire is yet to come and not seen yet.

Friday was the end of the longest running exhibition I’ve had so far. A collaborative exhibition between the Iraq Embassy in the UK and the office of the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) High Representative to the UK. The work shown here “ISIS Bullet Hole Painting (Assyrian Archer)” was part of the exhibition which ran for a year. The textured surfaces of this work were moulded from ISIS damaged sculptures in the Mosul Museum last year. My thanks to KRG High Representative Mr Karwan Jamal Tahir, and the Iraqi Ambasssdor Dr Salih Hussein Ali and the Iraqi Culture Minister Mr Fryad Rwandzi.  #art #isisbulletholepainting #painting #sculpture #iraq #kurdistan #mosul #ancientart #antiquities #momaps1 #britishmuseum #ashmolean #iwm #whitechapelgallery #london #baghdad #erbil #london #532gallerythomasjaeckel #white #longsharpgallery #relief #reliefsculpture #whatremains #imperialwarmuseumlondon #iamashurbanipal #contextartmiami #theatreofoperations #ashurbanipal #assyrian #unesco

Babylon, Elam, Media, Egypt, Urartu, Archaic Greece, Arameans, Arabs, Scythia, Persia, Cimmeria, Mushki and Israel are nations that the Assyrians fought against, Assyria feard nothing with its most modern weapons back then, they made all kind of hand weapons and so all European medieval weapons also Roman are taken from the Assyrian creativity.

Persia starts where Mesopotamia ends, the persians were nothing but some uncivilized tribes in the time of mesopotamian superiority, Cyrus saw how great Mesopotamia was and United the persians with force to beat the medians and got the medians into his empire the "Acheamenid Empire" and after that he planned invading Babylonia with the help of Babylonian Jewish citizens, the great mesopotamia that gave birth to the mightiest and the very first empires of the world finally was dead.

In Kooperation mit der Universität Cambridge hat sich vor Kurzem eine Handvoll angehender Historiker getroffen, um über diverse Möglichkeiten zu diskutieren, die assyrische Geschichte (oder einen Teil davon) zum Leben zu erwecken. „Anita, how did you get into Assyrian History?"
„Oh, that happened ... completely by an accident."
„Like the way it happened to all of us."
Yes, that's how it works. 😁 (The library of King Ashurbanipal was discovered in Ninive by Henry Austen Layard (hach!) and his team in the 19th century.)

Had a wonderful time at Mesopotamian Nights! Donated our popular Ashurbanipal Lion Hunt piece which was auctioned off at $15,000! Can't wait until next year! The amount of detail, time, work and craftsmanship required for this type of art is unreal! "No Mold!" - Everything is hand pressed!

The ziggurat of Ur was an American air base for a time, if you can imagine a worse nightmare than that. See original post for less infuriating images of our beloved ziggurat of Ur.

I studied ancient Mesopotamian archaeology in college, and I was so obsessed that I took Akkadian as my language. At the time, my dream job was studying tablets at the British Museum or the Met. Kinda crazy to see the real deal objects in person, 20 years later. Also weird that they are still housed in a museum in England instead of in modern day Iraq and Iran. #imperialism #colonialism #archeology #nineveh #ashurbanipal #cuneiform #babylon #assyrian #akkadian #britishmuseum

내가 가장 잊지못했던 부조..이 전시관의 제목은 "아슈르바니팔(Ashurbanipal, BC 668-627)의 도서관"이라는 곳으로 부제는 "사자사냥(The Lion Hunt)"인데, 세계최초의 도서관을 직접설립하고 본인이 했던 기록을 직접 찾기 쉽게 키워드 개념을 도입한 왕이기도 하다.  구약의 노아방주와 같은 내용의 "갈가메시 서사시" 또한 이곳에서 발견된 곳이기도 하다. 또한 역사기록상 처음으로 .국가정보부라는 조직을 만든 왕이기도 하다. 당시에 아시리아와 바벨론 등 메소포타미아 문명의 왕들을 문맹이였다고 한다. 그러나 아시리아 왕들 중에 유일하게 글을 쓰고 문학을 즐긴 왕으로도 알려져 있고, 실제 본인이 직접 작성한 글또한 남아 있을 정도라고 한다. 이 부조는 BC 612년에 아시리아가 멸망하며서 니네베성 서쪽에 있던것이 불타 무너지고 그것이 토사에 쌓여 있다가 1846년에 완벽하게 발견된 유물이기도 하다. 여기서 한가지....서양의 역사교육에서 알렉산더 대왕 다음으로 많이 언급하는 왕이 아슈르바니팔 2세라고 한다...그처럼 서양의 아시아 역사교육에 굉장히 중요한 인물이라는 것이다. 그에 대한 행적은 대영박물관 쐐기문자판과 그가 이룩해놓은 도서관이 대량을 발견됨으로써 잘 알려져 있으나, 최고의 전성기를 구가하던 BC 627년 왕의 사후에 15년만에 아시리아가 멸망한 이유에 대한 자료가 없다는 것이 현재 미스터리로 남아 있다.  #Ashurbanipal #Asyria #thelinohunt

ASHURBANIPAL (685 BC - 627 BC)
The people bow to your esteemed will, o wise and illustrious King Ashurbanipal of Assyria. Across the world, you are known as both a scholar and a warrior, and yet the legends represent merely a glimmer of your true ambition. Although your enemies cowered at the thought of your ferocity in conquest, you were most proud of your intellectual pursuits. Your thirst for knowledge led to your establishment of the royal library at Nineveh, which came to represent one of the greatest collections of ancient texts and tablets found anywhere in the world - securing your legacy as one of Assyria's greatest kings.

Op 5 juli 1894 overleed de Britse oudheidkundige en archeoloog Sir Austen Henry Layard, bekend om zijn opgravingen in Nimrud en Nineve. De objecten die Layard vond, waaronder talloze kleitabletten van de bibliotheek van Assurbanipal en verschillende Lamassu (Stiermannen), werden naar Londen verscheept. De objecten maken deel uit van de vaste collectie van het @britishmuseum. De Stiermannen op de laatste drie foto’s waren te zien tijdens een expositie over Nineve in 2017/2018 in het @rijksmuseumvanoudheden in #leiden. #otd #history #archaeology #ancienthistory #nineveh #nimrud #babylon #ashurbanipal #assyrian #akkadian #austenhenrylayard #excavation #mesopotamia #cuneiform #lamassu #britishmuseum #london

De objecten maken deel uit van de vaste collectie van het @britishmuseum. De Stiermannen op de laatste drie foto’s waren te zien tijdens een expositie over Nineve in 2017/2018 in het @rijksmuseumvanoudheden in #leiden. #otd #history #archaeology #ancienthistory #nineveh #nimrud #babylon #ashurbanipal #assyrian #akkadian #austenhenrylayard #excavation #mesopotamia #cuneiform #lamassu #britishmuseum #london
Reflecting darkly
-Reflecting darkly on the forces that make one think outside the boxed in place your mark here mentality, and doing so joyfully in the knowledge of human frailty heading out nevertheless,  and boldly going on - and on - and on to where optimism conjures up new realities of engaging occupation.  In O for everlasting peace? 
Releasing the bonds of war to the loving care of museums curated on the rocks of ages past and revered by those who simply smile at foes and say ''come on in'' ''remember the Alamo'' ''we love you, we love you, we will always - love yooo - and more - all the days of yore - Humanity surely there in every rock, every nook and every cranny;  I don't know what a cranny is, but maybe that's why we have geologists

You don't see it?

Ah! Then Texas, we have a problem ... Back to the drawing board - maybe a drawbridge? From where you can shout Y'all come back now y'hear - Have a nice day, knowing that you really meant it once - when people really mattered and politicians seemed real not fake and a steak out was affordable - and great fun along with a gallon of chilli and - O oh all you could wish for in a land of plenty enough for this world in the next inevitable chapter of ''Love thy neighbour as thyself'' with no acceptable hint of hypocrisy from articulate orators of the crass regurgitation that not even an eagle would land on

The rest of the clay dried out before I could finish the tablet! In the last few lines that I was able to write of this section of the Gilgamesh epic, Utanapishti (the Babylonian Noah) tells Gilgamesh how he was given eternal life after surviving the flood. The god Enlil "brought out my wife and made her kneel next to me, he touched our foreheads and stood between us to bless us: 'In the past, Utanapishti was human, but now, Utanapishti and his wife shall become like us gods..."
