Ukraine: A view of Caffa, built in the form of an amphiteatre. It has regained its ancient name of Theodosia since it has been possessed by the Russians. It was built by the Greeks in the fifth century, upon the ruins of Theodosia; the Genoese took it from the Tartars in 1226, and 71 years later the Venetians drove out the Genoese, who soon after got possession of it for the second time, and fortified it. In the year 1474, it feel into the hands of the Turks, when of course it lost both its trade and commerce, which had been considerable up until this time. In the year 1774, it was ceded by the Turks to Russia. From "Museum Worsleyanum; or a Collection of Antique Basso-Relievos, Bustos, Statues, and Gems' with Views of Places in the Levant.
