What is this work about? Why did Dionysius write it? How is this work viewed in the OO Communion? Did he believe the Armenians were un-Orthodox in faith? Can this work be read online somewhere?

"The Armenians say : "From whom do you descend-you who are Syrians by race ?" - Against them we will say: Neither you know from whom you descend. The name "Armenian" is derived from "Armenia" which is the name of a country (and not of a person). It is we (Syrians) who have enlightened your authors and revealed to them that you are descending from Toganna, who was from the children of Japhet. As to us Syrians we descend racially from Shem, and our father is Kemuel son of Aram,' and from this name of Aram we are also called sometimes in the Books by the name of " Arameans." We are called "Syrians" after the name of "Syrus" who built Antioch with its banlieue; and the country was called after him, "Syria."
I haven't been able to pull it up on my computer. I don't know why.
