    The origin of Stylus and tightly tied up to the stories of Caulonia greca .Questa was destroyed from Dionisio the Old one in the 389 which, for other, not so much must be intended in the material sense of the word, how much in the political meaning: The news of the total destruction and denied by the archaeological discoveries. In fact Caulonia perdette note in that occassione, his/her autonomy. In what Stephen Bizantino writes Kaulonia to the voice and to see only him an indication to the donation of the city' served as Dionisio to the near Locresis. We know, to every way, that Caulonia resources, after 357, if not as autonomous polis, certain as big suburb, for work of Dionigi II. Naturally I don't report me to the country of the province of Reggio Calabria that, up to a little while ago called Castelvetere and then, amiss taken the name of the ancient republic italiota! This was exhumed from the important archaeological countries of Paul Orsi, which with the recovered material sull' acropolis and to north of the hill Lighthouse (on the Head of Stylus) I confirm the existence of Caulonia he/she anchors in the IV or III sec. to. C. (Temple Dorico of the Ancient actual Kaulon Monasterace M. Fotocamera). That I/you/he/she deal with a' ancient denomination of Stylus affirms him/it E. Manfredi in its Answer apologetico-criticism and the same thinks Calepino: Consilinum, oppidum Magnae Greciae, apud oram Calabriae Ulterioris, inter Locros, et Scyllacium, to 38 mill.as litore, 5. ll name Stilida is found, for the first time, Maritime nell that under such name it marks a station to 400 stadiums from Zephirium and to 600 from Naus (Naos), while the Ravennate and the table Peutingerianas still have Caulon. Around l ' origin of the name, the writers of Calabrian things affirm that it can derive from the conformation of his/her promontory or from the columns survivors among the 40 that, according to Paul Orsi, they decorated the temple of Caulonia, always devoted following the archaeologist trentino, that did his/her a clever interpretation of W. Leloy to Apollon Katarsios. It is also known that the name Cocinto in the century XVI and XVII I designate the Head Stylus, << pivot and core >>, it says l ' Bears, << of the primitive Caulonia >>. they Purchase therefore an extraordinary importance for l ' origin of Stylus the following words of Apollinare Agresta, that he/she wrote in 1677 and I reside for a long time to Stylus in the Convent of St. Giovanni Theresti: << Therefore this city (Stylus) not less than buildings, that it was of tenants very magnificent, and numerous, as well you/he/she can be picked up, not only from the histories and ancient chronicles of various authors, but more easily in his/her ruined residences, that since to the present day they are veracious witnesses of the of her trail magnificence: being anchors us in that place a lot of factories and churches; among l ' others, one to the lito of the sea, under the title dell St. Mark (Frontal of the Church of St. Mark Monasterace M. Fotocamera). To the quoted ones, we add Plinio, that he/she writes: << To Locris Italiae frons incipit, Great called Graecia. In ea now flumina innumera, sed memoratu digna to Locris Sagra, et vestigia oppidi Caulonis, Mystia, Consilinum Castrum Cocynthum, quod them longissimum Italiae promontorium aliqui existimant >>. L ' Agresta, nell operates quoted, it says that her << noble city' of Stylus and is subsequently three times in more places manufactured >>. << You first time above the promontory Cocinto (Coin of Kaulon Fotocamera), a distant mile from the Jonio sea where today Castellone and Rigusa it is said and more vulgarly Head of Stylus >>. Them noble with alquanti of the people, they brought him to place the second time the city', on l ' risen of the mountain Consoles, so called by Pomponio Mela, as many stony and sour, how much eminent and tuto. We are surely able therefore to conclude that to the foundation of Stylus to the strata of the Consoles it happened during the whirling period of the Saracen raids. << They had to be few and poor people those that drew up there from the uncertain countries of the coast toward the VII and the VIII century, reconstituting the small commune of the Stilida Marittima, simple postal station, to which nell completes Roman decadence, ancient l ' was reduced Caulonia. They had to be above all agriculturists and workers, to which you/they well soon were added, to drawn by the unusual posture, a quantity' of Greek monks, fugitive d ' east and of Sicily, that the mountain of Stylus and that more neighbors turned shortly volger of time into one of the most frequent centers of monachismo of the whole Calabria. The history of Stylus before 1100 and a mystery; we see of it however reflected l ' image, rather l ' shades uncertain, in the papers of the two following centuries to the how much numerous. << Monasteries basiliani,come those of Arsafia, of St. Leonzio, of the S.Ss. Apostles, of S. Giovanni, of St. Nicolo' of the Jump or of the Wood they were within and around the small city', grouped to the oriental slopes of the Consoles that provided of few works it constituted an impregnable propugnacolo (Monastery of St. Leonte the Old Stylus Fotocamera). Numerous degrees eremitiches were installed in the natural caves opened in the slopes of the mountains and the surrounding ones (Degree of Sant' Angel to the slopes of the Mountain Consoles Stylus Fotocamera). The town I don't delay toward thousand to conquer an apparent economic wealth and a notable military importance and politics. Stylus I preserve, also after the Norman conquest, the language and the Greek rite. The Catholic herself has the characters of the so said period of the second age' dell gold dell was Byzantine.


   Near the Church of St. Francis d ' Assisi is found that of St. Nicola from Tolentino, that is almost going to downfall. It is very interesting however to be visited, for the frescos that all interns they are found (St. Nicola from Tolentino Stilo Fotocamera) .


   Near St. Nicola from Tolentino on the side I damage the Madonna of the Graces, in whose inside important frescos decorate her/it (Fresco of the Madonna of the Graces Stylus Fotocamera).
