Ancient Greek city located at the waist of the Cimmerian Bosporus straits. Its remains have been discovered north of the modern city of Kerch in Ukraine. In recent years, the identification of these remains with the city of Porthmeion has been questioned, as it is believed that they belong to Parthenion. The settlement dates to the 6th-1st cent. BC.
