Although the Assyrian civilization was conquered, the people did not die out and were simply absorbed into another group. Their descendants are still around, the same with the Hittites and Illyrians and ancient Egyptians. I have often speculated SOME surviving Hittites made their way to Ireland. So it is very possible Assyrian women made their way into Persian harems to unify the conquered people. History is full of people joining friendly neighbors.
