Today Yerevan celebrates its 2800th anniversary. In 782 BC, Argishti I of Urartu conquered the area of modern-day Yerevan and built a fortress on one of the hills. He left a cuneiform inscription in Urartian, now an extinct language, where the name of the fortress is first mentioned: Er-bu-u-ni [src: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yerevan#Erebuni]
