Ancient Arran covered all eastern Transcaucasia, which included most of the territory of modern-day Azerbaijan Republic and part of the territory of Dagestan.However, in post-Islamic times the geographic notion of Arran reduced to the territory between the rivers of Kura and Araks.Movses Kaghankatvatsi and other ancient sources explain Arran or Arhan as the name of the legendary founder of Caucasian Albania (Aghvan) or even of the Iranian tribe known as Alans (Alani), who in some versions was a son of Noah's son Yafet.In pre-Islamic times, Caucasian Albania/Arran was a wider concept than that of post-Islamic Arran.All new members get two days free subscription to sample our site.We have set standard membership rates in order for you to fully utilise the facilities, however we don’t believe in membership grades but a fair pricing to meet all budgets.The term Aghuank is polysemous and is also used in Armenian sources to denote the region between the Kur and Araxes rivers as part of Armenia.The Armenian historian of the region, Movses Kaghankatvatsi, who left the only more or less complete historical account about the region, explains the name Aghvank as a derivation from the word ału (Armenian for sweet, soft, tender), which, he said, was the nickname of Caucasian Albania's first governor Arran and referred to his lenient personality.
