During their expansion toward West, the kings of early Neo-Assyrian period met, in Northern Mesopotamia and in Southern Anatolia, Luwian and Aramean populations, who had then established prosperous States along the main caravan roads developing trade and commercial exchanges all over the Middle East. Their culture and religion conserved Bronze Age Syrian, Hurrian and Hittite traditions, shared also by Mesopotamian States and Empires. The Assyrian kings of the 9th century BC, claiming their hegemony on these territories, after the conquest began there a program of colonization, which took different forms, according to the geographical or political situation of the region. The ongoing studies of two of these colonies, Tushhan and Kar-Assurnazirpal, founded by Assurnazirpal II, illustrate well the differences characterizing the program of Assyrian colonization, depending not only on  changing political and economic realities, but maybe also on specific needs of the State administration, and of its ideology.
