Connections between Olbia Pontica and Sinope were firmly established by the 5th century BC. The quantity of Sinopean goods in Olbia was especially numerous in the last quarter of the 4th to the first third of the 3rd century BC. Tiles, louteria, amphorae containing wine and oil, and architectural terracottas were all imported from Sinope. These connections continued until the middle of the 1st century BC, when Olbia was destroyed by the Getae. They were renewed again in the 1st century AD and continued until the last quarter of the 4th century AD, when the settlement of Olbia came to an end.
