Sinope (Gr: Σινώπη, Tr: Sinop) is an ancient Pontic city which was founded by the Miletians in the 7th century BC. According to Pontic Greek academic Dimosthenis Oikonomidis (1858-1938) in 1869, the population of Sinope numbered 15,000 and 3,000 were Greek Orthodox who were dependent on the Diocese of Amaseia for religious purposes. These Greeks ran their own Greek schools (girls' schools and municipal schools),. There were also 4,500 Greeks living in the surrounding region.
