The PontosWorld Story

PontosWorld began as an online forum in 2005 and evolved into a website the following year. Our aim is to produce and publish interesting information about the region of Pontus in English. Our facebook page has over 10,000 followers while our website attracts over 6,000 visitors each month.

Pontos or Pontus?

Although the name of our website contains the word "Pontos" which is a transliteration of the Greek word used to describe the historic region of Pontus, ie. Πόντος, we have adopted the historic term "Pontus" as a descriptor in most of our articles because that is the term generally used in English-language historical material. Individual contributors to our website use their own spelling.
