Sample text

The Kallippidai might have been dispossessed Greeks who had ‘gone native’ or an originally Scythian tribe which became partially hellenized. 1 Concerning this area which is now under discussion, no one knows accurately what is beyond it; for I have not been able to learn from anyone who says that he knows it at first-hand…. 2 But as much as I was able precisely to learn by hearsay at a distance will all be recounted. 1 From the trading-centre at the mouth of the Borysthenes (for this is the midmost point of the whole Scythian coastline), from here the first inhabitants are the Kallippidai who are Scythian Greeks, and beyond them is another race called the Alizones.

This was the only official colony of the Spartans during the ‘Age of Colonization’, though there were the unofficial attempts of Dorieus: the Spartans conquered Messenia as a means of extending their territory. From the fourth century Taras became the most prominent of the Greek cities in southern Italy. According to Eusebius, Taras was founded in 706, and the earliest pottery on the site dates to the last quarter of the eighth century (Graham (1982a) 112). 20–21 Responses 46–47; Fontenrose 140, 280, Responses Q34–35.

Dorieus took the expedition which he had led to Libya and travelled along the Italian coast. 1 At this time, according to the people of Sybaris, they and their king Telys were preparing to make war on Croton, and the Crotoniates in great fear begged Dorieus to help them, and obtained their request; Dorieus joined forces with them against Sybaris and helped them to capture it…. 1 Each of them points out these proofs, the Sybarites a precinct and temple beside the dry river Krathis which they say Dorieus dedicated to Athena Krathias after helping to take the city, and the death of Dorieus himself they consider as the greatest proof, because he was killed for transgressing the instructions of the oracle; for if he had not gone beyond these instructions, and done what he had been sent to do, he would have taken the country of Eryx and held it, and neither he nor his army would have been destroyed.
