Sea of Marmara
The Sea of Marmara (Turkish: Marmara denizi, Modern Greek: Μαρμαρα̃ Θάλασσα or Προποντίδα) (also known as the Sea of Marmora or the Marmara Sea) is an inland sea that separates the Black Sea from the Aegean Sea (thus the Asian part of Turkey from its European part) by Bosporus and Dardanelles.
Propontis (Προποντίς, -ίδος) was the ancient Greek name for the sea. The name derives from pro (before) and pont- (sea): the Greeks commonly sailed through the Propontis to reach the Black Sea.
