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 after the withdrawal of Flag of Epirus Epirus.

Magna Graecia can also be released as a Vassalized.png client state by Flag of Epirus Epirus from the conquered cities of the Italiote mainland through its unique missions if the Epirus Flavor Pack is enabled, as a possible reward for a successful Pyrrhic War.

Formation requirements

Decision

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.

Mission tree

Main article: Greater Greece

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.

Megale Hellas

We have at last staked a claim to the leadership of all Magna Graecia having united, most of its cities under our leadership. Already our leader, [gm_3_greek_scope.GetRulerTitle] [gm_3_greek_scope.GetRuler .GetPraenomen] is being called 'Omagyrios', the assembler, for uniting the squabbling cities of Magna Graecia.

With a united purpose, the Italiote cities can finally contend with the novel threats of the age by pooling their resources.

Release requirements

Main article: Alexandrine Ambition

After establishing a foothold and conquering or subjugating enough territories in the region,   Epirus can release Magna Graecia as a   client state to unify and administer the region through a task of the Alexandrine Ambition mission tree. Releasing Magna Graecia as an Epirote client will give a somewhat different flag with colours reflecting those of its   Epirote overlord, and unlike the formable does not include territories in Sicily, which can be released as the Epirote releasable   Sikelia instead.

The Greek colonies of Italia are clearly too weak and lazy to be trusted to govern themselves. Epirus will be a paternal force, protecting and guiding them in their continued position as the rightful rulers of Magna Graecia.
