Plate 16: view of the ancient Genoese Fortress of Soldaya or Sudagh, drawn from the eastern side of the vale; as well as the Kush-kaya, which lies behind; and being composed of the marmoraceous limestone rock, may afford some ideas of this species of mountains in Taurida. The ascent to the tower is via a wall which is provided with several turrets. From Volume 2 of "Travels Through the Southern Provinces of the Russian Empire, in the Years 1793 and 1794".
