Thurium whose name is derived from a fountain named Thuria the new Sybaris was founded in 443 BC on the site of ancient Sybaris, destroyed in 510 BC by the Crotona. It was a Panhellenic Athenian colony, initially populated by Messenians, driven by the Spartans. His coinage of money was very important. Around 390 BC, the afflicted Leucanians a serious defeat for the inhabitants of Thurii (Diodorus XIV, 101) did not affect the prosperity of the city. She fell under the sway of Brettiens 268 before.
