(Ordu) Pontus, Turkey.
A tributary colony of Sinope in Tibarenian territory, on the
S coast of the Black Sea (Pontos Euxeinos). The citizens
were transferred to the new city of Pharnakeia, ca. 48 km
farther E, by Pharnakes I of Pontus (ca. 180 B.C.).
Kotyora itself declined into a small village. Traces of
the port, cut in solid rock, were formerly visible at Kiraz
Limani, on the N side of Ordu.
