Ator Now Made Available

Another old Assyrian periodical, Ator, has now been made available on the MARA online archive.

MARA has 29 issues (from July 1925 to July 1928) of this periodical collected from the Florence BetIsho BetGeorge Collection (USA).


Ator was a periodical published in New Britain, Connecticut by The Assyrian Publishing Company and its editor Yonatan Bet-Solieman.  The first publication is dated July 1925 and handwritten (until the August 26 edition) in the Eastern Assyrian script. The periodical appears to have been published on a monthly basis and printed by the Good Samaritan Society.

It is then clear that there are several issues missing. If you happen to know of any further issues of this important magazine and/or any other items that you miss on the MARA online archive, please send us a mail to describing what and how you want to share. Please include your contact information.
