Historical background


CALABRIA - Taranto

(272-235 BC)

Autonomy - first alliance with the Romans (272-235 avant J.-C.)

Taranto, founded around 706 BC by the Parthénopéens was the only colony of Sparta. According to mythology, Taras was the son of Poseidon and the nymph Satyra. He was saved in a shipwreck by a dolphin who placed near the future city and legend TAPAS designates the city. After the departure of Pyrrhus, Taranto submitted to Rome. Under the leadership of Consul Spurius Carvilius Maximus, Taranto became an allied city of Rome. After the defeat of 272 BC, it enjoyed a period of great prosperity that lasted until the Second Punic War (221-202 BC).
