DVIN Print
Dvin was the capital of Armenia in antiquity and may have had a Jewish settlement in ancient times, but the traces of this settlement have not yet been recovered. The archaeologist Niwra Nagopian excavated at Dvin during the 1960s. "A careful study of the site showed that the excavations, that have centered around the main public buildings, including the Cathedral, have never reached the parts of the city where a Jewish community might be expected to live."
