The collective monograph presents the studies conducted by the group of authors on the basis of historical-geographical information about Armenia by ancient authors, as well as the chrestomathy of most of the original texts. The focus of the research is on the historical-geographical references in the works of Herodotus, Ctesias of Cnidus, Xenophon, Strabo, Pliny the Elder, Claudius Ptolemy, and several other authors, due to whom it became possible sometimes completely, sometimes partially to reorganize the borders of Ancient Armenia, the administrative-territorial division, the famous settlements and the flora and fauna.

Owing to them, various issues of the role of Major Armenia, Minor Armenia and Tsopk kingdoms were covered. In the chrestomathy section, the passages from Ancient Armenia that directly or indirectly contain historical-geographical information are taken from most of the sources. The book can be useful for historians, geographers, researchers of historical geography, students and a wide range of readers. (in Armenian)
