13 PB, III. 8 p. 31: "...The sparapet Vach'e and brave Vahan Amatuni arrested Databe, brought him before the great king Xosrov, and killed him by lapidation as a man who would betray his land, brigade, and the troops of his lord. [Databe's] azg, wife and children were located there in the stronghold of the prince of Erhshtunik', which was called the island of Aght'amar. Sparapet Vach'e got into a boat, crossed over to the island, and left neither male nor female alive. Thus was the azgatohm of that naxarardom eliminated, and their tun was seized for the Crown".

Years later, the sole-surviving Shawasp Artsruni avenged his clan's extermination by murdering Hayr: "Now when he had reached this place, the judgment of the Lord's anger was visited upon the impious Hayr for his deeds and words. He was betrayed into the hands of a man named Shawasp, a remnant of the Artsrunik' azg. While [Hayr] was seated in a wagon and was travelling on the road, Shawasp approached and began to tell the mardpet a fictitious story, saying: 'I saw a bear as white as the snow'. And he charmed the mardpet into getting out of the wagon and mounting a steed. Then they entered the forest and lay in wait. When they were in the bushes, Shawasp remained somewhat behind. He hit the eunuch Hayr with an arrow from behind that went right through him. Hayr fell to the ground and perished." PB, IV. 14 p. 124.
