Kastamoni (Byzantine Kastamon) is the name of a city and province in Turkey today called Kastamonu but also referred to as Kastambol or Kastambolu. Another city in the province is Inepoli (Tr: Inebolu). Kastamoni is not within the borders of most maps depicting the historic region of Pontus.
The city is located at the base of a mountain at which a Byzantine fortress existed. Many believe that Kastamoni was originally called 'Kastron Komneni' (Kastron meaning castle in Greek and Komeneni referring to the Komnenos Empire of Pontus).
