  Lucania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lucania was an ancient district of southern Italy, extending from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Gulf of Taranto.
To the north it adjoined Campania, Samnium and Apulia, and to the south it was separated by a narrow isthmus from the district of Bruttium.
The main ridge approaches the western sea, and is continued from the lofty knot of mountains on the frontiers of Samnium, nearly due south to within a few miles of the Gulf of Policastro, and thenceforward is separated from the sea by only a narrow interval until it enters the district of the Bruttii.

 Basilicata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Roman times the district was called Lucania and was administered together with the district of Bruttium (inhabited by the Bruttii), to the south.
The district of Lucania was so called from the people bearing the name Lucani (Lucanians), who invaded the country about the middle of the 5th century BC, driving the indigenous tribes, known to the Greeks as Oenotrians, Chones, and Leuterni (or Leutarni), into the mountainous interior.
When Pyrrhus of Epirus landed in Italy, 281 they were among the first to declare in his favor, and after his abrupt departure they were reduced to subjection, in a ten year campaign (272).
