Proper nounEdit

Armenia f sg (genitive Armeniae); first declension

  1. Armenia (ancient region populated by Armenians)
    Armenia MinorLesser Armenia
    • 23 BCE – 13 BCE, Horace, Odes 2.9:
      Non semper imbres nubibus hispidos
      manant in agros aut mare Caspium
      vexant inaequales procellae
      usque nec Armeniis in oris,
      amice Valgi, stat glacies iners
      mensis per omnis...
      The rain, it rains not every day
      On the soak'd meads; the Caspian main
      Not always feels the unequal sway
      Of storms, nor on Armenia's plain,
      Dear Valgius, lies the cold dull snow
      Through all the year...
    • c. 77 CE – 79 CE, Pliny the Elder, Naturalis Historia VI.25:
      Armenia autem Maior incipit a Parihedris montibus, Euphrate amne, ut dictum est, aufertur Cappadociae et, qua discedit Euphrates, Mesopotamiae haut minus claro amne Tigri. utrumque fundit ipsa et initium Mesopotamiae facit inter duos amnes exiturae.
      Greater Armenia, beginning at the mountains known as the Paryadres, is separated, as we have already stated, from Cappadocia by the river Euphrates, and, where that river turns off in its course, from Mesopotamia, by the no less famous river Tigris. Both of these rivers take their rise in Armenia, which also forms the commencement of Mesopotamia, a tract of country which lies between these streams.
    • 5th century AD, Saint Jerome, Latin Vulgate, Genesis 8.4
      requievitque arca mense septimo vicesima septima die mensis super montes Armeniae
      The ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on Armenia's mountains.
