No. The only characters that can reveal without using their Action are the Sultan (at any time) and the Slaves (when another Slave uses his action).

because I think there might be some situation that an Assassin wants to hint his Slave allies that they can win by Slave revolution by showing his(the Assassin) position only; and meanwhile the Assassin knows that taking his Action-Assassinate to someone might be killed by a Guard(Reaction) instead, than even if the Rebels finally win he won't earn any point.

so in the case this Assassin can NOT only reveal himself(on his turn) without doing any Assassinate, right?

Right, this is the whole point of hidden role games in general. You can't show who you are except when the game rules explicitly allow it (for instance using your action in this game). You can tell everyone you're an Assassin, but of course there are situations where a Guard or the Sultan (or even a Slave!) would want to claim to be an Assassin. If you were allowed to show, there would be no lying, and therefore no game.
