Cotyora

The city of Ordu was founded before 400 BC under the name "Cotyora" in the area commonly known as Bozukkale located 5 km from the city center.  Cotyora means “Kut Area”. Described by historians as a Turkish-speaking tribe settled around the Caspian Lake between 2500 BC ad 2400 BC and then migrated to the West, the Kut Turks were told be of Turkish origin by the Sumerian expert Benna Landsberger before Ataturk during a History Congress in 1937. Also in 1931 Ordu, Ulubey and Gölköy starting from the borders of Fatsa, Mesudiye and Aybastı towns were connected to Şarkikarahisar brigade within the state of Erzurum (Provincial District) and interior and exterior parts of Fatsa including Unye was connected to Canik (Samsun) brigade.
