The British Museum
King Ashurbanipal of Assyria (r. 668–c. 631 BC) was the most powerful man on earth. He described himself in inscriptions as ‘king of the world', and his reign from the city of Nineveh (now in northern Iraq) marked the high point of the Assyrian empire, which stretched from the shores of the eastern Mediterranean to the mountains of western Iran. This major exhibition tells the story of Ashurbanipal through the British Museum's unparalleled collection of Assyrian treasures and rare loans.
