"The 5050-m-high, glacier-covered Kasbek stratovolcano in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia, just south of the border with Russia, has produced long lava flows down flank valleys. Next to Mount Elbrus, Kasbek is the highest volcano in Caucasus Mountains. The summit cone and the latest lava flows are of postglacial age, and the latest andesitic-dacitic lava flow was radiocarbon dated at about 6000 years ago. Gushchenko (1979) listed an 800-700 BC eruption from Kasbek."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
