Abstract:
The god Ninurta's role as a warrior was related to a very powerful weapon called Šárur, with mythical powers, not just like any other weapon, but even like gods, it could think, communicate, and even convince gods like Enlil and Ninurta. It had the ability to flay, ex-plore, seek help if necessary, make decisions, protect cities, and destroy enemies. Šárur was a loyal companion to Ninurta, aiding him in battles and offering advice. It was a powerful symbol of Ninurta's strength and authority. In this study, we examine the lit-erary, religious, and linguistic sources of this weapon. Our aim is to shed light on this mythical weapon.
