Abstract
This paper describes the most interesting diseases observed in skeletal samples from two necropolises found in Shirak and Lori provinces during archaeological excavations in the last decades and corresponded to Classical/Late Antiquity period (1st century BC – 3rd century AD). The diseases observed were grouped into the following categories: traumas, infections, nutritional diseases, tumors characteristic for group. A relatively low prevalence of fractures suggests a relatively low level of interpersonal violence in this community. Palaeopathology allowed highlighting the spread of some illnesses, many of which can be related to the life and health conditions of the Armenian population.
