TARAS to Metapontium We agree. Cavalry and a strong force must be left behind to defend our own lands. We intend to send 5000 hoplites and our navy to the aid of Cumae, 4000 Tarentines and 1000 Heracleans. We believe Metapontium will be able to send between 1000-2000 hoplites as well, and we promise to use our men back at home to aid in protecting all of our lands - ours as well as yours. to Croton: We thank you for the anchorage and the freedom to recruit volunteers. We still do implore you to support us, the barbarians are ever on the rise, and care must be given if they are to be defeated. to Locri and Rhegium: We understand. If you wish for us to support you in stabilizing your states in the future, we would appreciate aid in the Cumae Campaign, but we will not push this hard for you must put yourself above others first. to Cumae: We can promise 5000 infantry to arrive at first together with whatever the Metapontine could muster in support. We hope more Greeks from the homelands will join and we will make an official call for volunteers for your cause, for it is a true and honorable cause. to the Greek World: We call upon the states, and to private volunteers to aid the Greeks in Cumae! If their city will fall it will be a great loss for all Greeks in the world, and will sign the end of Greek Cultural and Militaristic supremacy over Italia and the world! Volunteers are welcome to amass in Taras and Metapontium, and with their words also are welcome to arrive in Croton when we stop there.
