A mountain region of southern Italy, bounded by Campania, Apulia (Puglia) and Bruttii (Calabria).
Thereafter an unhealthy geographical location, and the extension of large slave-operated estates, and the Italian rebellion against Rome known as the Social War (91-87; in which they suffered massacres at the hands of Sulla) all contributed to hasten their decline so that the Lucanians as a separate nation eventually ceased to exist.
Their territory, together with Bruttii, fromed the third Region of Augustus' Italy,and remained a province or district of Italian Suburbicaria in the later empire.

In 333 BC, the same year in which Alexander the Great began his war against the Persian empire, Alexander Molossus was called by the Greek colony of Taras (Magna Graecia), to fight the Italic populations of Lucanians, Bruttii and Samnites.

The Samnite tribes filled a disproportionately large space, while yet they showed no disposition to make it thoroughly their own.
Mixed populations thus arose; the bi-lingual Bruttii, in particular, included Hellenic as well as Samnite elements and even perhaps remains of the ancient autochthones; in Lucania and Campania also similar mixtures must to a lesser extent have taken place.
The Samnite nation, moreover, could not resist the dangerous charm of Hellenic culture; least of all in Campania, where Neapolis early entered into friendly intercourse with the immigrants, and where the sky itself humanized the barbarians.
