Historical background


LUCANIA - THURIUM

(Ve - fourth century BC)

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. AD It was refounded in 194 BC under the name of Copia by the Romans. At the end of the Republic, again, the name is attested Thurium. Octavian Augustus was born there September 23, 63 BC.
