YEGHEGIS JEWISH CEMETERY, ARMENIA
ghirone

The cemetery was discovered in 1996 by Bishop Abraham Mkrtchyan. The inscriptions were identified as Hebrew by a Jewish dentist working at the Siranush camp, Hebron. Numerous gravestones were unearthed by Armenian and Israeli archeologists in 2000 and then in 2001- 2002. Some have ornaments that are characteristic of the Orbelian kingdom (12th-15th centuries, Syunik and Vayots Dzor). 18 tombstones have inscriptions in Hebrew and 2 in Aramaic. The oldest dated stone is from 1266 and the latest one is from 1336/7. Persian words used in the inscriptions may indicate that the community spoke Judeo-Persian.
