Sybaris ( Ancient Greek : Σύβαρις ; Italian : Sibari ) was an important city of Magna Graecia . It was situated on the Gulf of Taranto , in Southern Italy, between two rivers, the Crathis ( Crati ) and the Sybaris ( Coscile ).

The city was founded in 720 BC by Achaean and Troezenian settlers. Sybaris amassed great wealth thanks to its fertile land and busy port. Its inhabitants became famous among the Greeks for their hedonism , feasts, and excesses, to the extent that "sybarite" and "sybaritic" have become bywords for opulent luxury and outrageous pleasure-seeking.

The ruins of Sybaris and Thurii became forgotten as they were buried by sediment from the Crati river over time. The ruins were rediscovered and excavated in the 1960s. Today they can be found southeast of Sibari , a frazione in the comune of Cassano allo Ionio in the Province of Cosenza , Calabria region, Italy .
