Magna Graecia was an area of Greek settlement in southern Italy from shortly before the date the Romans set for the founding of the city of Rome. Wealth, philosophers and Olympics star Milo of Croton came from Megale Hellas, as it was known to the Greeks. Colonists from Corinth settled in Syracuse, the birthplace of Archimedes. Pithecussae, Cumae, Tarentum, Metapontum, Sybaris, Croton, Locri Epizephyri, and Rhegium were some of the cities.
