Legend has it that after discovering the Golden Fleece, Jason and the Argonauts paid a visit to Constanta, which was once known as Tomis.
Tomis, founded in the 6th century BC by Greek colonists from Miletos, was taken by the Romans in 71 BC and renamed Constantiana by Roman Emperor Constantine the Great in honour of his half-sister.
