The AgI atom in the title compound, [Ag(NO3)(C10H20N4)2]·C2H5OH·H2O, is coordinated by the N atoms of two N-heterocycles [N-Ag-N = 151.5 (1)°]; the approximately linear coordination geometry is distorted into a T-shaped geometry owing to a long AgOnitrate bond [2.717 (4) Å]. The N atoms of the N-heterocycles that are not involved in coordination point towards the lattice water molecule, which functions as a hydrogen-bond donor. The water molecule itself is a hydrogen-bond acceptor towards the ethanol solvent molecule. Hydrogen bonds of the type N-HO give rise to a layer motif parallel to (001).
