UN OLIVIER A AGRIGENTE

"The foundation of Akragas concludes the vast colonizing movement from Greece towards the West, begun in 8th century B.C. with the arrival of the Eubean settlers at Naxos in Eastern Sicily. According to the historical tradition the city was founded, around 582 B.C., by a group of Greek settlers from Gela (with reinforcements coming from their own mother-city or metropolis, Rhodes). The oikists or leaders of the expedition were Aristinoous and Pystilus. "
