Selinunte was founded by Doric Greek colonists from the Sicilian Greek settlement of Megara Hyblea, the latter also settled near Syracuse by Greeks circa 730 BC and located roughly 15 miles North of present-day Syracuse on Sicily's east coast.
In 409 BC Selinunte became involved in a war between Syracuse and Athens, when the Greek metropolis sent an expedition to punish the Sicilian cities that sided against her on behalf of Syracuse.
During the first Punic War with Rome in 250 BC, the Carthaginian forces, fleeing the Roman advance towards the main center of Panormus (Palermo), decided to deprive the Romans of a prize by razing Selinunte to the ground, destroying it forever.
