Translations into Armenian were not restricted to theological, religious, nor even historical sources. Armenians also enjoyed fables and philosophical sayings. This work is a translation from Latin done in 1614 by Hakob T‘ok‘atets‘i (James of Tokat). The Latin text itself was a Westernized version of the popular Eastern tale of Kalila and Dimna. The engraving on the left depicts the emperor in a scene from one of the fables; the incipit (first) page across from it is ornamented with recognizably Armenian illustrative devices.
