Orgame is situated on the estuary of the Danube. The city was recently identified thanks to archaeological evidence. It is one of the earliest purely Greek colonies in the Black Sea. Successive habitation until the 7th century makes it difficult to extract conclusions about the urban network and the economic and political life of the city in Antiquity. The necropolis of Orgame is one of the best excavated in the wider region.
