Aghdash was a village in the territory of the Borchali uezd of the former Tiflis governorate, later in the former Allahverdi (Tumanyan) district, and present-day Lori province. It was located near the villages of “Akhtala” and “Shamlig”. The village was destroyed in the 19th century and the population was resettled to the villages of Akhtala and Shamlig. At present, the village is in ruins.

The toponym means “a village in a small, open, barren area” and was coined by combining the words “agh” meaning “small, minute” and “dash” meaning “a barren, a desert, an open space” in Old Turkic.
