Foundation/Settlement of the place

A Thessalian founded new Sybaris

Fifty-eight years after the Crotoniates had destroyed Sybaris, a Thessalian gathered together the Sybarites who remained and founded Sybaris anew; it lay between two rivers, the Sybaris and the Crathis. And since the settlers possessed a fertile land they quickly advanced in wealth. But they had possessed the city only a few years when they were again driven out of Sybaris



Both Siris and the Sybaris which is on the Teuthras were founded by the Rhodians.

Troezen - Sybaris

Achaeans settled at Sybaris jointly with Troezenians (Aristotle, Politics: section 1303a).
