The paper examines three 8th century BC artifacts uncovered in an area which historically belonged to Armenia . According to previous studies, the findings are representations of the external elevations of a fortified civil building probably erected at the foot of the biblical Mount Ararat , an active volcano with a permanently snow covered top. The study exploits the methodologically founded possibility of detecting the representation of recurrent elements which can determine castle typology identifying features . The drawings guided the quest for the proportions and dimensional relationships used to reconstruct, in precise graphical scale, the elevations the fragments alluded to. The floor plans were obtained in bi-univocal correspondence to the different heights using observations of active and passive defense derived from the comparisons with other findings of the same period , the relevant literature and iconographic sources . The spatial configuration hypothesis was illustrated thanks to the rigorous axonometric views of the virtually reconstructed digital model.
