You're welcome Levon Smiley  However it's not just me, there is a committee who approved it and who works on the awards too.

I wish this site the best,

This is a spectacularly good site, well made, well organized, well written.  One must be old enough to remember how difficult it was to get even grubby snapshots and century-old plans of Armenian monuments as recently as twenty-five years ago to fully appreciate the importance of sites like this--both the excavations of some of the buildings at the physical site and the virtual, instructional site that we are voting on.  Every nation with a UNESCO-worthy site should look to this one as a model.

Hi everyone, I just thought I would share this numismatic fact:

It is interesting to note that the Bagratuni  Dynasty, first ruling from Kars, then Ani, never in its glorious existance  issued coins.  With the medieval metropolis of Ani reaching up to 200,000 and an army that withstood  the empires of arabs and greeks,  as well as neighboring Armenian kingdoms, the Bagratunis certainly had the autonomy and power to issue currency.
(A notable exception of an extremely rare follis struck by the Lori branch of the dynasty.)
To this day the lack of coins from them remain a great mystery.
