The image of the lion is used as an ideogram in Sumerian pictography and Egyptian hieroglyphics, both of which are considered to be the earliest forms of writing. The author shows that it is possible to systematize the current interpretations and meanings of that ideogram in Sumerian and Egyptian only on the basis of the homonyms of the Armenian words ‘aṙiwyś, aṙewś, aṙoyś”. The fact that the image of a lion was first used as an ideogram in the Upper Palaeolithic period in the petroglyphs of Syunik and subsequently spread around the world from there is also shown. The cuneiform appellatives of Armenia, 3rd-1st millennia BC, are also examined in this book.
