An ancient Greek settlement on the north-east coast of Sicily, located at the base of a peninsula that juts into the Tyrrhenian Sea. A colony of Zancle, it was probably founded in the eighth or seventh century BC. In 260 BC, during the First Punic War, the Romans won their first major naval battle against the Carthaginians in the waters off Mylae.
