English term or phrase:The Pontus ... The Poet
To the people of Homer’s time, the Pontus Euxinus was a second ocean and was known as The Pontus just as Homer was known as The poet…the Pontus was first called Aexinos (inhospitable) until Greek settlement and commerce when it became the Pontus Euxinus (hospitable.)
