  Pontus

The northeast portion of Anatolia, alongside the Black Sea and extending into the interior. For a record of this region in mediaeval times, see Trabizond, below.

  • KASHKA (Gasgans) The Kashka were a warlike, nomadic people inhabiting northern Anatolia, particularly the region that later became known as Pontus. While not a Sea People per se, the Kashka invaded the Hittite empire in conjunction with Sea People raids on the southern tier of Hittite territory, and together with the early Phrygians smashed the Hittite state around 1200 BCE.
