Default Searching for an answer and true history???

Hi to all Armenians all over the world!
I am Bulgarian. I have a sword which is connected with Ethiopia and Armenia.
Pictures will be attached.
I am still searching info- who is " O .Terzian", whose name is marked on the sword.
I wrote Yerevan Museum, but am not satisfied with the answer-
" Dear Emil Slavov

Sorry for replying to your letter so late.

According to the information that we found in the big Armenian Soviet Encyclopedia concerning to the item O. Terzian considered to be a master of making weapons and he put his stamp on the sword as many masters do (O.Terzyan) on that Damask style weapons (sword). He is Armenian and we guess he is one of the relatives of Armenian famous Terzian’s family. Armenian and Ethiopian relationship dates to 451 A.D and the big Armenian community is created in 7th century in Ethiopia. Many Armenian masters in the fields of gold, iron-making, weapons-making, architects, painters etc had a good success there.
As to Sarkis Terzian, he was not a trader he was the head of Military Service in Ethiopia and led Ethiopian delegations to Germany, England, Italy, Amsterdam, USA etc.
In Ethiopia there is also Armenian church Addis Abeba St. Gevorg. You can also have information you need from that Church and Armenian community in Ethiopia.
If you have any other questions we are here to help you.

Thank you

Sincerely

Head of department
of exhibitions and design of
Yerevan History Museum

Gevorg Orbelyan"
I am still trying to find a way to contact the Armenian Diaspora in Ethiopia, but cannot find an e-mail address.
Can anyone help me find who is " O.Terzian' and the history of the sword?
Thank you in advance
my best regards to all

I doubt you can find more information about O. Terzian on the network. I've googled that name in Armenian, didn't find anything relevant.
Nor was I able to find any website or contacts of Armenian diaspora in Ethiopia.
But I think Ministry of Diaspora http://www.mindiaspora.am can help.
It seems English version of website doesn't work at this moment, you can find email and contact form here http://www.mindiaspora.am/comments.php?LangID=4

Hope you'll success in your research

Hi Emil Slavov,

my name is Kevork Terzian from Ethiopia and now living in Australia.
Have you found out about the sword? I just found your request whilst surfing the net today. Please advise from what date is the sword? My grandfather was Ohannes Terzian and his brother Sarkis Terzian were arms merchants in the beginning of
1900s Ethiopia. I don't know if there is any conection, also where did you get this
sword from.

Kind regards,

Kevork Terzian
