There are several mythological figures and events with names similar to - or could be read as - "Ashura", but the sword is most likely based off of the Assyrian god Ashur. He is usually depicted as an eagle-headed, winged deity, usually with a disk symbol surmounted by the figure of a warrior. He was originally the baal of the city of Ashur, possibly a solar deity, but later grew in prominence to become the chief Assyrian god, the god of battle.
阿修羅 / あしゅら [ashura] in Japanese.
