Surp Stepanos Church – The Cornerstone

Last updated December 18, 2017

The cornerstone for Surp Stepanos is located at the northwest corner of the building, just above ground level. Here are several photographs of it, with different lighting, in the hopes that somebody may be able to translate it.

It is difficult at this point to determine if the stone is from the most recent construction of the church in 1871, or if it is from an earlier date. Any assistance in translating the stone would be greatly appreciated.
