Armenisti[edit]

I removed the village of 'Armenisti' in Chalcidice from the 1st section. To my knowledge, the name of the village comes from the Greek verb 'αρμενίζω', which means 'to sail', 'to navigate the sea'. I do not know if the verb itself derives from the ethnonym 'Armenian', but i find it very possible. However, since the village is in the shores of the 2nd foot of the peninsula, its name was given to it for for its connection to the sea, not for the presence of an Armenian community there. I may be wrong, as always; if someone knows better, may correct me. Hectorian 23:57, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Peter Charanis, "Armenians in the Byzantine Empire"[edit]

This book gives detailed insights into the Armenian presence in the Byzantine Empire and utilizes contemporary sources and historians of that era to chronicle the history of Armenians within the empire. It includes important historical events and trends affecting the Armenians in the empire such as the deportation of Armenians by the empire and forced relocation into Greece and the Balkans in order to form the stock from which troops were drawn (i.e.Basil, founder of the Macedonian Dynasty), the deportation and occasional massacre of Armenian nobility in order to more easily impose the roman administrative system and imperial structure, etc. Please check out this book (it's pretty rare) but it would be an extremely useful source for wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.166.238.146 (talk) 04:19, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
