Magna Graecia is a formable nation in southern Europe, representing a unification of the rich and influential Hellenistic city states of southern Italy. It can be formed by any Hellenistic country with its capital in one of the three Italian regions, and requires asserting control over enough of the important Greek cities of region, some of whom have since fallen under the control of Italic powers such as Flag of Bruttia Bruttia, Flag of Lucania Lucania, and Flag of Rome Rome. Despite being a tier 3 endgame tag, forming Magna Graecia has only relatively modest requirements - within a single region - and similarly more modest rewards, though it will likely require contending with significantly stronger powers of Flag of Rome Rome and Flag of Carthage Carthage. Historically a unification of the Greeks in Italy was a constant ambition of the kings of Flag of Syracusae Syracusae, who attempted many times to subjugate and conquer the other Greeks of Sicily and beyond with varying levels of success, though no truly unified state or league would emerge and the divided states of Magna Graecia would eventually come under Flag of Rome Roman rule.

Formation requirementsEdit

The main formation decision is generally geared towards   Syracusae or one of the other Siceliote states (likely after forming   Sicily) and requires owning the main cities of Sicily as well as several important Greek cities on the mainland.

Form Magna Graecia

The Greeks have been present in southern Italy and Sicily for many centuries. Whilst often far removed from the macro-politics of the mainland, the region of Magna Graecia, as it was known, played an important part in the Hellenistic world.

Magna Graecia can also be formed as a reward for one of the final tasks in the Greater Greece Greek cultural mission for the Italiotes after forming the   Italiote League, with slightly different requirements. As it is only available to the Italiote city states of the mainland, it does not require owning any Sicilian territories and instead gives options for controlling the Italiote cities of the Adriatic.
