A coastal settlement founded by Greeks, Tyritake is located about 11 km south of Kerch. The city's foundation dates to the middle of the sixth century BCE, although a Late Bronze Age settlement may have preceded the Greek colonial foundation. The city became a part of the Bosporan state and flourished until the late fourth century CE. It is noted for its circuit of fortification walls.
