Poti (Georgian: ფოთი, Poti) is a city in the Samegrelo province in the west of Republic of Georgia. It is situated on the east coast of the Black Sea and therefore serves as one of the three Georgian ports on that sea. Nearby the city, the major river of Western Georgia, Rioni, enters the Black Sea. Poti was founded as a [Greek]] colony in the 7th century BC and named Phasis. For the first time in Georgia, a railway was constructed between Poti and Shorapani in 1871. In 1991 a European water-skiing championship took place in Poti. The legend about the Golden Fleece (the Argonauts, Jason and Medea) is geographically set in the town of Poti and the river Rioni. In 1986 the famous traveller Tim Severin stopped here during his "Golden Fleece" round. Image File history File links Question_book-3. ...
