Historical background


(5th century BC)

Caulonia is an Achaean colony founded at the end of the 7th century BC. Another tradition makes Caulonia a Crotonian colony. Caulon, son of the Amazon Clete would be the eponymous hero of the city. The city was finally destroyed by Dionysius of Syracuse in 388 BC. Its inhabitants were deported to Syracuse while its territory was annexed by the Locrians. The city of Caulonia was later rebuilt, but never regained its former fame.
