Scylacium

Σκυλάκιον), also Scylacēum (Σκυλακεῖον), or Scylletium (Σκυλλήτιον). Now Squillace. A Greek town on the east coast of Bruttium, situated on the two adjoining hills at a short distance from the Coast, between the rivers Caecinus and Carcines. From this town the Scylacius or Scylletĭcus Sinus (Σκυλλητικὸς κόλπος) derived its name. It was at one time a dependency of Crotona, but was colonized by the Romans in B.C. 124, and again under Nerva.
