Does anyone know a little about this war? I had no idea that Greece had ruled Eastern Sicily and much of Southern Italy as an extension of its political and religious culture. Thanks!

There was a really big power struggle leading up to the war. In a series of naval defeats, Carthaginian forces were so reduced by Roman forces that the country surrendered.

There were three Punic wars fought between Rome and Carthage which were the two main powers of the western Mediterranean in the early 3rd century BC. This was a continuous conflict that went on a very long and were fought mainly in the sea and in Sicily.

The geometric art style of the Ancient Athenians!

Did you know that the Ancient Athenians had their own distinct style from the rest of Ancient Greece? Many of the vases are destroyed and you cant see the designs, like in the picture below. But I love the black and terracotta color geometric style

Did anyone know that Prince Phillip (rip) was Greek?

Apparently he was born in Corfu and his family was temporarily "Greek royalty" but they were exiled soon after.
