 Pontus, or Pontos, was the Greek name for an area on the southern coast of the Black Sea, situated in what is now Turkey.

The ruins of the ancient city of Ephesus are located in present-day Turkey. At different points in its history, the city came under the control of both the Greeks and the Romans. It is the site of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, namely the Temple of Artemis (Diana) which was built around 550 BC and destroyed in 401AD.

Trebizond is the historical name for Trabzon, a city on the Black Sea coast of Turkey; it was the capital of the Empire of Trabizond between 1204 and 1461.
