Looks like one of those treasure maps that Nic Cage willl decipher in 3 minutes and it will lead to some massive amount of riches buried underground in Washington DC.

We found a nice

excerpt from the rock part of the document text,

gave me during a trip to the citizen

original rock fragmented

writing to us came from mixed,

may be an important document for the history of the Armenian

The name of the region, the king's name, may have information about the structure of the environment

You say "We" Who are we?
I'm assuming that this is written on a fragmanted rock, given to you by whom? and from Where? (Location)
I'm having hard time understanding what you are trying to say!

When I read the above response by the initiator of this thread, I could not make head or tail, I could not understand a word. It seems like they may have written in another language and let the online translator translate it.Even after rezading it several times I still have no idea what it says.
BTW. We know that "toprak" is a furkish word to mean "soil/land/hogh". Some call it "dirt" in English.

Arpa, isn't "toprak" also a "small box" or "package" in Armenian? I know because I am pretty sure I remember hearing Santa would bring a lot of topraks (of presents).

Toprak, thanks for the Armenian alphabet! ;) It helped a lot.
In my opinion this is a tombstone taken from an Armenian cemetery the letters are damaged by nature and the person who copied it on paper did a drawing of it. As is the article is not readable, it's not making any sense, since you live in Istanbul why don't you take it to the Armenian school and let them read it for you, maybe the real stone will be more readable.
