The town, rich and powerful, vainly attacked Locri but in 510 it destroyed Sybaris. Crotone bravely fought against the great power of Syracuse, then against Bruttians and finally declined progressively in the Roman period. Neverthless Crotone was a diocesan centre and all through the Middle Ages and the modern period it was the only inhabited place and remarkable port on the Calabrian Ionic coast.
