Epistulae ex Ponto (Letters from the Black Sea) is a work of Ovid, in four books. It is especially important for our knowledge of Scythia Minor in his time.

Like the poems of books 3–5 of the Tristia, these describe the rigors of his exile and plead for leniency; they differ only by being addressed to individuals by name. Ovid's hopes rested largely on the genial character of Germanicus, nephew and adopted son of the emperor Tiberius, who is addressed or mentioned in several places.
