Astronomical map inscribed on the Sevsar Mountain, with the 12 houses of the Zodiac, 3rd-2nd millennium BC.

William Tyler Olcott, the founder of the American Association of Variable Star Observers, in the Star Lore of All Ages, noted that the Zodiac in all probability was created in Armenia around 3,000 BC. He noted that the astronomer and mathematician Edward Walter Maunder pointed out that the Zodiac was created in the area between the 36° and 42° north latitude, the territory between the Black, Mediterranean and Caspian seas, and that all of the animals that are present in the Zodiac are only to be found in Armenia.
