Among his works are his Fables and a Geography, both of which have been mistakenly attributed by some to Vardan Areveltsi.
Aygektsi was born in Marata, a Syrian village near Aleppo. Vardan lived for a time in Duluke (Doliche). Driven from there, he went to the monastery of Aygek, in the Black (Amanus) Mountains. His Fables, commonly known as Aghvesagirq ("The Book of the Fox"), are said to have been only in part from his pen, many additions having been made by others.
He died in 1250.
