The AgI atom in the title compound, [Ag(C11H11N3O)3]NO3, shows a T-shaped coordination arising from bonding to the N atom of three N-heterocycles; the geometry is distorted towards square pyramidal owing to two weak AgOnitrate interactions [AgO = 2.691 (5) and 3.073 (5) Å]. The cation and anion are linked by O-HN and N-HO hydrogen bonds, generating a three-dimensional network.
