The story of this plate with a symbolic model of the solar system.
In the burials of II millennium BC, discovered in Lchashen, Armenia by archaeologist A. Mnatsakanyan in 1967, an amazing bronze plate found. Surprising, since there are no analogies to it in world archaeology.
According to researchers, this is the model of the universe, created almost four thousand years ago.
The chased bronze plate represents a model of geocentric solar system. In the center of the lower part is the planet Earth, depicted as a semicircular battle-axe blade with a cruciform base. The image reminds of the sign for Earth accepted in modern astronomical literature. It also surrounded with two rings, marking the layers of water and atmosphere. Comparatively larger radiant disc above symbolizes the Sun. Five planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, and the Moon considered an independent luminary closest to the Earth. Such an arrangement of geocentric system also found in medieval Armenian manuscripts. According to astronomers B. Toumanian, as far back as the Bronze Age, the inhabitants of the Armenian Highland had assumed the round nature of the Earth, probably, in resemblance with luminaries visible in the firmament.
