Scribes usually used a specific pattern in creating different inscriptions and using particular expressions in antiquity. These patterns must have been respected as written regulations in inscriptions for some communities. The aim of this paper is to recognize Urartian written rules in different written patterns that Urartian scribes used in royal inscriptions. The prayer to a great deity -mostly Haldi- at the beginning of the inscription and a curse in the end and help request from the deities are among most respected patterns in most Urartian royal inscriptions. “for the sake of Haldi”, “through the greatness of Haldi”, “Haldi ordered me to …”, “I conquered …”, “King built …”, “I did these in one year”, help request from deities and the name of the king along with his father’s name, who was the previous king, were mentioned.
