The Assyrian epics reflect a number of topics, the foremost of which
are the achievements of the kings, their invasions, and their wars for peace,
the stabilization of borders, the strengthening of their armies, and the
preservation of their trade routes. All these topics were very important in the
developing the human and spiritual thinking , because the nature of man in 
Mesopotamia is concerned with the origin of existence, life, death, battles,
immortality, justice, good and evil, and other things that fall within his
human society. In this topic, we will deal with five epics, which are as
follows: First: between the lands of Babylon and Assyria, Tukulti-Ninurta I,
second: the revolution of the palace, Adad-Shuma- Uusr Third: To Urartu,
Shalmaneser III, Fourth: Your forgiveness, marduk, Emile-Marduk, Fifth:
Oh The king, live forever, Nabo Palasar.
