The Sassanians also added Babylon to Asuristan.[1][2] The region was previously known as Mesopotamia and is nowadays known as Iraq.[3] The province for the most part streched from Mosul to Adiabene.[4] While the official religion of the Sassanid empire was Zoroastrianism the religion of the Assyrians was from the 1st and 2nd centuries onwards Church of the East Christianity, although some also still worshipped the old Assyrian-Babylonian gods. Assyrians were the indiginous inhabitants, and outnumbered the Persians in the Asuristan province.
