O blocadă a Strâmtorilor de acum 21 de secole


In 180 BC, King Eumenes of Pergamum will try to establish a naval blockade of the Straits, in the context of his war with King Pharnaces of the Pontus. The blockade will fail due to the intervention of Rhodes. The incident will have major implications for the politico-military and economic life in the Black Sea and the Lower Danube area.
