AZARA (Ἄζαρα), mentioned by Strabo (xi. p.527) in his Account of Armenia as situated on the Araxes; some read τὰ Ζάρα: probably like other words occurring in that country, the name was spelt indifferently. Groskurd (note ad l.c.) is inclined to think it was a temple dedicated to the goddess Zaretis, or the Perso-Armenian Artemis. (Comp. Hesych. sub voce Selden, de Diis Syriis Synt. 2.100.15.)
