Reproduction of a relief depicting a Mesopotamian priest or king, probably Assyrian. Urban civilisation in Mesopotamia dates back to before the appearance of writing in the 4th millennium BC. The urbanisation of the earliest cities in the Near East was organised around large monumental constructions, most notably the step-pyramid-shaped temples called ziggurats, and was coordinated through a complex society, led by a king who often assumed the role of high priest.
