Ashurbanipal ( Ashur creates a son ). King of Assyria. He was grandson of the famous Sennacherib and son of Esarhaddon. Ashurbanipal, or, as he was known to the Greeks, Sardanapalus, reigned from 668 to 626 B.C. He is best known for amassing a library of literary texts including an epic of creation, the Flood and others. Modern scholars have reason to be grateful to Ashurbanipal because he was a lover of learning and collected a great library of cuneiform clay tablets (over 22,000 in number) that have given to us most of what we know of Babylonian and Assyrian literature. http://home.netcom.com/~aldawood/ashur.htm The "great and honorable Ashurbanipal" (Ezra 4:10), soldier, hunter scholar, shown carrying a basket for the rebuilding of a temple in Babylon.
