Title: Sinopeans Abroad and Foreigners at Sinope
Author(s): RUSCU, Ligia
Journal: Ancient West & East
Volume: 7 Date: 2008
Sinope was connected, through the travels of her citizens as well as through the arrival of foreigners, chiefly to cities across the Black Sea and to those along the main sea route connecting the Straits to Egypt; less important are cities on the Greek mainland. Politics seems to have had but limited influence on the movements of people; the one major change was brought about by the coming of Rome, which opened up spaces previously untouched, such as the Anatolian hinterland and Europe beyond Greece.
