 Syrian elephant or Western Asiatic elephant (Elephas maximus asurus) is a proposed name for the westernmost population of the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), which became extinct in ancient times.[1] Skeletal remains of E. m. asurus have been recorded from the Middle EastIranIraqTurkey and Syria, from periods dating between at least 1800 BC and likely 700 years BC.[3] Due to the lack of any Late Pleistocene or early to mid Holocene record for Asian elephants in the region, it has been suggested to have been anthropogenically introduced during the Bronze Age[
