Munt Erciyes (Turkis: Erciyes Dağı), an aa kent as Argaeus, is a volcano in Turkey. It is a lairge stratovolcano that is surroundit bi mony monogenetic vents and lava domes, an ane maar. The bulk of the volcano is formed bi lava flows of andesitic and dacitic composeetion. At some time in the past, pairt of the summit collapsed towards the east.

The volcano began tae furm in the Miocene. At first, a volcano farther east named Koç Dağ furmed frae lava flows. Then, again tae the east, lairge explosive eruptions formed a caldera. During the Pleistocene, Munt Erciyes proper grew inside the caldera thegither with a group of lava domes. Lateral eruptions of Erciyes mey haeve generatit ash layers in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean during the early Holocene.

The last eruptions occurrit during the early Holocene and mey haeve depositit ash as far away as Palestine; the occurrence of histerical volcanism is uncertain. Future eruptions of Erciyes mey endanger ceeties in the north of the muntain, in Turkey. The volcano wis glaciatit during the Pleistocene, and ane regular glacier still exists today, but is receding.
