This page is for the Bruttium, a section of the third regio of Italy, Lucania et Bruttii. For the other section, see under Lucania. This region is a peninsula, bounded on the north, beyond the river Lao and the Pollino massif, by the Lucani. The coasts, especially the eastern on the Ionian sea, were strongly colonized by Greek settlers during the middle 1st millennium b.C. These colonies were collectively called Magna Graecia.
Common remarks: the place-names have been put in the nominative case, an asterisk * means not attested, reconstructed form. The late place-names of probable Latin origin have not been included. The IE roots are in the form given by Pokorny's Indogermanische W÷rterbuch. The links will be active when the single pages will be published, see the main page. For any comment, suggestion, email me.
