Thurii was a city in the Roman Republic. During the Third Servile War, Thurii was sieged by Spartacus and his rebel army.

The port of Thurii was important, since the lack of a cavalry was not easy to rectify, manufacturing an enormous quantity of metal weapons was an absolute must.

He seized the mountains around Thurii, together with the town itself, and then prevented traders bringing in gold and silver, barred his own men from acquiring any, and bought exclusively iron and bronze at good prices without harming those who brought them. The rebels made bases that were established for the winter at Thurii and Consentia in the Bruttian countryside.
