Histria is a Greek colony on the Dobrudja coast of the Black Sea (today on the bank of the Sinoe Lake). It was founded around the mid-seventh century BC by settlers from Miletus (it was probably founded in 657–656 before Christ according to Eusebius, and in 630 before Christ according to a legend mentioned by Skymnos). The city existed for fourteen centuries, until the seventh century. This is the oldest Greek colony on the west coast of the Black Sea, and one of the first on the entire Black Sea coast.
