@Infanta,
If you mean სულხან-საბა ორბელიანი then it was the name of a person, usuallly rendered in the Latin alphabet as "Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani", (1658-1725) who was the teacher and uncle of King Vakhtang VI of Georgia. He introduced modern schooling and printing to that country. Orbeliani also compiled the first extant Georgian dictionary and wrote a book of instructive fables, Tsigni sibrdzne-sitsruisa (c. 1700; The Book of Wisdom and Lies).
