Amazasp I (Georgian : ) was a king of Iberia (Kartli , modern eastern Georgia ) whose reign is placed by the early medieval Georgian historical compendia in the 2nd century. Professor Cyril Toumanoff suggests 106-116 as the years of his reign and considers him to be the son and successor of Mithridates I of Iberia who is known from epigraphic material as a Rome 's ally.
The Georgian chronicles report Amazasp's joint, ten-years long, rule with Derok (Deruk) and make Armazi as his seat (as opposite to Derok's residence at Mtskheta ). Many modern scholars, however, consider the Iberian diarchy a pure legend and argue Amazasp was the king in his own right.
