Which source?

Response to Location of Ardzea

 

What source is this in? I don't see anything in Hamilton's 1842 book about his 1836 journey, "Researches in Asia Minor, Pontus, and Armenia".

But Ardzea is presumably just another variant spelling of Artsn / Artze / Arzan, the Armenian settlement said to have been located close to Byzantine Theodosiopolis. Nobody has identified its site as far as I know, though some think it perhaps was located at Ilica. If Hamilton was getting his information from a local tradition rather than from written sources, that would be interesting.
