Erzeroom, known by the name of Arze to the Byzantines, is the largest city in Armenia, situated in a fine plain about four or five miles south of the Elijak branch of the Euphrates. The houses are small and mean, in some places built of stone, and in others of mud and bricks dried in the sun; the windows being pasted with paper instead of glass.
