The Ancient Locri was the birthplace of many renowned and highly regarded people in the antiquity; we can cite as proof ZALEUKOS, the first western legislator, he provided that the laws should have been written to avoid the arbitraries decisions of the judges based upon oral laws. We can also cite the philosopher TIMAEUS or the poetess NOSSIS, "Sappho's competitor", whose few epigrams, that reached our age, show us her undoubted greatness.
But Locri was, also, the birthplace of skilful athletes, winners of the Olympic Games, such as EUTHYMUS and HAGESIDAMUS, and of many others historical figures.
