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]
