EtymologyIn Samsun, the name Enete of Hittites; B.C. In 1500, the Miletan colonists founded the ancient city of Amisos where today's city center is located. M.S. In the 11th century, Danishmendlans tried to capture the city, but when they failed, they set up a new settlement called Yeni Amisos at a distance of 3 km from the city center. Although the name of the city was pronounced as Simisso and Samisso from Amisos in time, it passed through Turkish in the form of "Samsun" over Arabic. Umar argued that the city of Sinop could be associated with the name Sinuwa in the Hittite sources as Simisso in the medieval Italian maps of the city name and Sinussa in the Catalan maps.
HistoryUntil Cihan Harbi'ne: The only photo remaining from Samsun Castle. It is registered with the number "Samsun Kalesi 90764/10" in the library of Istanbul University Library and Documentation Department. The old name was Greek Amisos or Amisus and it was later used as Eis Amison or "Amisosa". This name was used in Samsun or Samsus during Roman and Byzantine period. The Antiquity historians who lived in the city of Themiskyra, known as the legendary female warriors, founded the Amazons near the Thermedon Stream. Every year, a festival is held in the city of Terme, as it is acknowledged in the historical and cultural values of the Amazon, Samsun and its region, which are narrated in various sources, which have been cut in a breast to make better arrows. The oldest community living by establishing a state within the province of Samsun is Kaşkalar, who bet on Hittite resources. The Hittites, the Phrygians, the Cimmerians, the Lydians, and the Miletus, who recently emigrated from the Aegean to the Black Sea, became the owners of the city. With the defeats of the Persians, King Lycee of Krezus, Amisos was captured by the Persian Empire. In 331 BC, Alexander the Great defeated the Persians and became the Macedonian empire. Amisos was the capital of the Pontus State founded by Mithridates, who died of Alexander's death. In the 1st century BC, Amisos was dominated by the Roman Empire, and was divided within the borders of the Byzantine Empire by separating the Roman Empire. Amisos was seized by the forces of the Malatian Terrible Omar commanded by the commander of the caliph Mutassim during the Abbasid time in 860, but was again taken back by the Byzantines. Though Samsun was besieged by Danishmendis with the Turks entering Anatolia, they were not taken. At that time the Danishmendians built Samsun Castle at a point far away from the city. In the time of Anatolian Seljuks, the Muslim settlements of Samsun were dominated by Anatolian Seljuks in 1185. After the Crusades, Samsun, which is the capital of Trabzon, became the ruler of the Greek Empire of Trabzon. As a consequence of the transit of the Genoese in the Black Sea, they remained under the Genoese rule for about 100 years.
