Pharas, Pharda, Pharsa, Pharsi, Pars, Parsi (Farsi), Parthi or PARTHIA = ARMENIA. The country of Armenia WAS the ancient Parthia, written by Charles Vallancey, in 1786.
Movses Khorenatsi (1695) and other so-called “classical and late antiquity” scholars and writers who were no more than Byzantine and Latin writers during the Renaissance period (middle-ages) have suggested that the Parthians were Persians who ruled Armenia and installed their own “Persian-Armenian” Kings to rule our land. Funny, because there are no Achaemenid, Sasanian, or Zoroastrian stone cities or kingdoms spreading across Armenia, or anywhere else for that matter.
According to the ancient Irish texts, however, an Armenian King named Arshak founded the empire of the Parthians, and one of their Kings Vologesus was the King of the entire Armenian Kingdom (which included Parthia).
Khorenatsi claimed that the “puppet” Armenian King Tiridates asked the Parthians for Assyrian, Syrian, Chaldean, and Greek wrote sources about the ancient Kings of Armenia because he supposedly (according to Khorenatsi) wanted to know if valiant men ruled Armenia or if they were cowards. Imagine that.
Why not just ask the noble Armenian families in Armenia instead of foreigners? Why would these Pagan-Armenian Kings need to ask foreigners about the history of their people? The great Pagan-Armenians themselves? No way.
It gets better. According to the Vendidad and Denkard Avesta texts from the middle-ages, the Armenian King Vologeses already PRESERVED the ancient texts about ancient Armenian Kings. Not only that, but this Armenian King was also the one responsible for the early collection of “Zoroastrian” scriptural texts which later developed into the Avesta.
Maybe that’s the reason why the oldest illustration of a “Zoroaster” that was found in Rome was a bearded olive man with a crucifix/cross on top of his head. Most likely another Armenian.
Quite frankly, I would believe the ancient Irish version of Armenian history over the Byzantine, Latin, Safavid, and Ottoman-Turkish versions any day. Lies and renaissance-era tales were handed down to lost Armenians that they conquered and ruled since the 15th century.
It is truly heartbreaking and devastating to see that Armenians have believed these lies written by our ENEMIES for centuries and generations, and they have been persuaded that Tigran the Great is the King of those so-called “Greek coins”.
Coins that were made by the Byzantine empire during the middle-ages. Tigran had stone walls and Tigranocertas spreading from the Caspian to Syria, so I am pretty sure that he had the power, potential, and ability to produce his Armenian coins if he wanted to.
The Sumerians never had coins and neither did the Hittites, “Akkadians”, Pharaonic Egyptians, “Phoenicians”, Israelites, or the pre-Christian Armenians.
That system was first introduced by the Armenian-Christians sometime between the 8 -12th centuries and was adopted by the FIRST Latin, Greek, Anglo, Arab and Mongol empires after the 13th century when the Kingdom of Ani fell.
These same Renaissance era liars have given Armenians their Vahagn and Pagan-Armenian Pantheon of Gods, and have set Armenians up beautifully like tricksters to believe that their Armenian-Christian people destroyed their Pagan heritage.
Without a single doubt, it was these lying Byzantine, Latin, Persian and Ottoman thieves and barbarians that needed to eradicate and re-write our history, to create and have a history and identity of their own.
