A while back someone asked where Elea was, and whether it was actually part of Greece...I did a little bit of research...and found that Elea was a Greek coastal city founded in 540 BCE in the south of Italy, by some Greeks who were fleeing from a Persian attack.
So, Elea was part of Greece, even though it is not somewhere that we generally think of as being Greek territory.
