Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 47 G4 Syracusae

Syracusae is founded on the southeast coast of Sicily as a colony of Corinth in 734/3 B.C. Initially concentrated on the coastal island of Ortygia, the settlement moved to the mainland and developed into an important and powerful urban center. Syracusae would, in turn, established secondary colonies: Akrai (664 B.C.), Kasmenai (624 B.C.), and Kamarina (559 B.C.) The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Siracusa/Syracuse
