CHORZANE, CHORZIANE´NE (Χορσάνη, Procop. Aed. 33; Χορσιανηνή, Procop. B. P. 2.24), a district of Armenia, which Forbiger (vol. ii. p. 601) identifies with the ACILISENE (Ἀκιλισηνή) of Strabo (xi. pp. 528, 530), which lay between the N. and S. arm of the Euphrates and on the boundaries of Cappadocia, and which on account of the worship of the goddess Anahid so prevalent in that district, is undoubtedly the same as the ANAITIS, or ANAITICA of Pliny (5.24.20). The plain of Erzíngán now represents this district. (Ritter, Erdkunde, vol. x. pp.73, 81, 550, 576, 774, 796; Journ. Geog. Soc. vol. vi. p. 201.)
