MOST RECENT

The remains of a 3000-year old skull so old that the only part remaining are the #teeth. Of course being a #dentist here I am analyzing how come there are two quadrants of upper teeth laid out in one row. The plaque describes the find as the skeleton of a ca. 50 year old man who was buried in an intricate tomb chamber along with animals (for the afterlife) and covered by a large clay slab. They were all placed in a “disjointed” manner on a pedestal out of wood. They assume the skull was damaged and split, hence the jaw disorientation. One quadrant even has a super-erupted wisdom tooth, but the other is missing it. It comes from a burial mound in Tigranacert, named Nor Haykajour, in #Armenian #karabagh, discovered and excavated only a few years ago. It dates to 900 BC. judging by the wear pattern and health of the teeth, it seems they had a palaeo #diet of healthy and abrasive foods but no cavities or unusual periodontal bone loss is evident. As Weston Price also claimed, these indigenous people had large and well-formed jaws with no crowding due to their diet. This area was also declared to be the site of the fourth city built by Tigranes II the Great, who ruled around 90-60 BC, the main one being where modern day Diyarbakir stands in today’s Turkey. #history #archaeology #armeniatravel #burialmounds #westonprice #Tigranes

#coin of #Tigranes the Great, King of kings, (ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΝ ΤΙΓΡΑΝΟΥ) #kingdom of #Armenia at its greatest extent in history. 95-56 BC. Holding this coin makes me wonder in awe, that so many people more than 2000 years ago actually held this in their hands. A large silver tetradrachm. All the coins of that area and period used #Greek letters. the Armenian alphabet was invented in the fifth century AD. Until then Aramaic, then Greek letters were used. (Alexander the Great spread his influence as well as his alphabet all the way to Persia and India.)The reverse of the coin is a beautiful deity called #TYCHE meaning “luck” (the Roman equivalent of “Fortuna” which is used on many coins of the era, especially Asia Minor, Phoenicia and specifically common to the ancient city of Antioch. She is the daughter of #Aphrodite and Zeus, and governed over the good fortune and prosperity of a city. That figure swimming below Tyche is the river god of Orontes, a historically significant river flowing through modern day Turkey/Syria. Antioch was founded on the banks of this river by a successor of Alexander the Great, SELEUCOS I, who also founded the Seleucid kingdom. 200 years later, as Tigranes the Great conquered Antioch, he had his most beautiful coins minted there due to the craftsmanship residing in the city. In 87 BC, #Halleys #comet appeared in the skies and thereafter Tigranes the Great used that apparition as a sign heralding a new era of “King of Kings”. The comet can be seen in some of his coins as a star with a curved tail on his crown, or Tiara.

The Empire extended from the Caucasus to Syria and the Caspian Sea to the Mediterrean Sea. This is why Armenians reffer Tigrans Empire as Sea to Sea Armenia - Tsovits Tsov Hayastan/Ծովիվ ծով Հայաստան

The #King of Kings in #Armenian #history refers to Tigranes II (also known as #Tigranes the Great). He was one of the most successful kings in world’s history (yet remains fairly unknown to western audiences). He conquered the entire #Mesopotamia, subdued the Parthians and challenged the greatest power of his time the Roman Empire. #ArmenianAmerican #Armenian #Armo #hye #hyetimez #ArmenianFood #ArmenianFoods #cook #basturma #pasturma #dolma #soujuke #lavash #boreg #paklava #tradition #culture #goodfood #lehmajune #eatgood #love #God #Christian

Tigranes II, more commonly known as Tigranes the Great was King of Armenia under whom the country became, for a short time, the strongest state to Rome's east. He was a member of the Artaxiad Royal House and ruled between 95 and 55 B.C. Armenia thrived under King Tigranes II, expanding sea to sea between the Mediterranean and Caspian seas while in his rule.

Tigranes had been a hostage until the age of 45 at the court of #KingMithridates II of Parthia after the #Armenian defeat in 105 BC. Other sources give the date as much earlier, at around 112–111 BC. After the death of #King #Tigranes I in 95 BC, Tigranes bought his #freedom, according to Strabo, by handing over "seventy valleys" in #Atropatene to the Parthians.
