Abstract: Abstract The Greek settlements Strabo refers to were trading centres on the northern coast of the Black Sea, trading with the hinterland territories of present day Ukraine. This commerce represents the earliest European orientation, and has a continuity in Ukraine’s entire history inasmuch as the products taken from this hinterland—grains, honey, wax, furs, animals, fresh-water fish—were, at that time, already making Ukrainian territories a ‘breadbasket for Europe’.
