Hyria - 460 BC

Tarantine vs Iapygian

Historical Background
According to a Tarantine dedication at Delphi, the Greek settlers of Taras once again battled the native Iapygians a generation after their disastrous defeat at Kailia in 473 BCE, perhaps this time on their own terms near the Iapygian settlement of Hyria.  The Tarantines, apparently confident enough in their own numbers to match up against an Iapygian force alone, were opposed by a much smaller enemy than the massive army brought against Taras thirteen years earlier.  This time the colonial Greek hoplites, backed again by a formidable cavalry arm, proved superior to the Italian highlanders.  The Iapygian king, Opis, was killed in the battle, an action commemorated by statues at Delphi.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?
