Tsovak (Armenian: Ծովակ; formerly, Nerkin Zagalu and Nizhniy Zagalu) is a village in the Gegharkunik Province of Armenia. The village is the site of a large Iron Age fort atop the hill to the south and west, with an 8th century BCE cuneiform inscription of Sarduri II cut into the stone at the north edge of the fortification.[1]
