ISSUES OF LOCATING AND ONOMASTICS OF OROMANTIDE AND FAVNITIDA BY THE ANTIQUE AND ANCIENT ARMENIAN HISTORIANS

Arutyunyan Akop Zhoraevich
Yerevan State University, Armenia


Abstract. Strabo in his "Geography" enumerates thirty administrative and territorial divisions of the kingdom of Greater Armenia without distinguishing their statuses (governorate or province). The issues of the location of Oromantide and Favnitida have not been ascertained till the present. On the basis of historical-linguistic analysis by means of the comparison of Strabo’s information with the information of Ptolemy and the ancient Armenian historians Faustus of Byzantium and Movses Khorenatsi, the meaning of these toponyms and their location are found out.
Key words and phrases: Страбон, Птолемей, Великая Армения, Арташес I, Зарех, Оромантида, Фавнитида, Strabo, Ptolemy, Greater Armenia, Artaxias I, Zariadres, Oromantide, Favnitida.
