The Temptations - Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) / Unite The World (Ungena Za Ulimwengu) important expansion took place under the Greeks of Pontos who came there around BC and developed the city as a trading center for the commerce of goods between the Black Sea ports and Crimea to the north; Assyria, Cyprus, and Lebanon to the south; and Georgia, Armenia and Persia to the east.
In BC, the city, along with the rest of central Anatolia, was occupied by a Celtic group, the Galatianswho were the first to make Ankara one of their main tribal centers, the headquarters of the Tectosages tribe.
The city was then known as Ancyra. The Celtic element was probably relatively small in numbers; a warrior aristocracy which ruled over Phrygian-speaking peasants. However, the Celtic language continued to be spoken in Galatia for many centuries.
