Construction and Maintenance of the Trebizond-Iran Transit Road

PROBABLY few thoroughfares have given such long and almost uninterrupted service throughout history as the Trebizond-Iran transit road. To it the town of Trebizond owes its birth in the year 756 B.C., to the fact that the Romans used the town as a transit port in their military campaigns it owes its rise, and to-day its prosperity depends to a great extent on the export and import traffic of Persia and the North Eastern Turkish provinces passing through its gates.
