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
lawgiver, 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
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 other historical figures.
