For the ancient calendar, see Old Assyrian calendar.

The Assyrian calendar is a lunar-based calendar that begins in the year 4750 BC, inspired by an estimate of the date of the first temple at Assur,[1][2] notably based on a series of articles published in the Assyrian magazine Gilgamesh, edited by the brothers Addi Alkhas and Jean Alkhas and Nimrod Simono.[citation needed] The year begins with the first sight of Spring. The Assyrian new year is still celebrated every year with festivals and gatherings. As of 2014 CE, it is the Assyrian year of 6764,[3] and this calendar is official in Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq.
