(pseudonym of Ervand Srmakeshkhanlian). Born 1870; died 1915. Armenian writer who lived mainly in Constantinople.

His works were first published in the late 19th century. In his short stories he depicted the unhappy life of the working people and the precarious existence of fishermen (“The Tale of Little Sepo,” “The Consumptive,” “Love of a Fisherman,” and “First Mother”). In his popular novel Amirai’s Daughter (1910), Erukhan depicted the loose morals of the aristocratic classes of Constantinople. He was a victim of the mass extermination of Armenians in Ottoman Turkey.
