Syracuse, as well as Massalia, provides a good example of a settlement on the ‘Western Greeks’ side of Ancient Greece. ‘Syracuse’ examines the history of this city located on the island of Sicily. The founders came from old Greece, from the Peloponnese. They came from Corinth, or more precisely, from the island village of Tenea. The story of Syracuse is one of success. It grew to be the largest, most wealthy, and powerful of all the Sicilian Greek cities, commanding the second largest territory in the entire Greek world.
