Wikipedia names at least two "battles of Bagrevand",

both occuring in the "plains of Bagrevand", but it did not name the modern day location of these battles. "Bagrevand" itself has a Wikipedia entry, but it is only described as "a region of the old kingdom Greater Armenia" without mentioning any specific location. Where approximately is the historical plains of Bagrevand?

According to Khorenatsi 3, 37, that was a field of Dzirav which now is in Turkey, il Agri, in the upper reaches of Eastern Euphrates (aka Murat River).

Both Khorenatsi and Buzand mention the mountain of Npat nearby. Unfortunately, I was (still) unable to find out where exactly this mountain (Npat, or Npatakan, or Nifagis, or Tapa-Sheid) is located.

This page (without mentioning any source) points at 39°36'30"N 43°28'37"E which is between the villages of Bayramyazi, Kumluca and Kumlubucak in Agri il.


  • Thanks! Could you explain which works you're referring to by "Khorenaci" and "Buzand"?
