Aiton (or Haiton)
Aiton (Or Haiton), an Armenian prince, who served long in the wars of Palestine against the Saracens. About A.D. 1290 he became a Premonstratensian monk in the island of Cyprus, and spent his life in, retirement and devotion. About 1307, while resident at Poitiers, in France, he dictated a history of the Tartars, their customs and their wars, which Nicolaus Falconius translated from the French (in which language it had been composed) into barbarous Latin, entitled Itinerarium et Flos Historicirum Oienitis, with an appendix entitled Passagium Terrn 'Sanctce.
