AbstractThe massive Temenos of Assor and Serū (Assyrian Aššur and Šerūʾa) in Arsacid Ashur testifies to the cult of ancient Assyrian deities in this venerable, albeit peripheric, city in Northern Mesopotamia between the 1st and 3rd centuries AD. It is also well known that the temple of Assor and Serū proper, built exactly above the Neo-Assyrian temple of Aššur, has yielded several Aramaic inscriptions that provide substantial evidence for the continuity of some Assyrian cults, onomastic, and religious calendar. Thanks to the joint analysis of epigraphic and archaeological data from the temple, the present paper aims at highlighting some aspects of cultic practice, namely the regular presence of some individuals during solemn festivities.
