We finally found this place and made a walk around the ruins of a Greek colony near the mouths of the Danube River, on the western coast of the Black Sea. It was the first urban settlement on Romanian territory when founded by Milesian settlers in the 7th century BC. It was under Roman rule from the 1st to 3rd centuries AD. Invasions during the 7th century AD rendered it indefensible, and the city was abandoned.
