Historical background


PAPHLAGONIA - SINOPE

(365-322 BC)

Sinope, a colony of Miletus, was founded in the 7th century BC. Located on the northern coast of Pont-Euxin, a maritime city, it was one of the most important ports in the region. The introduction of the new type with the head of the nymph Sinope corresponds to the installation of the democratic regime in Sinope in 453 BC by the Athenians. The satrap Datames captured Sinope around 375 BC..
