Stilo (Greek: Stylos, column) is a town and comune in the province of Reggio Calabria, in the Calabria region of southern Italy. It is located 151 km from Reggio Calabria. The origins of Stilo are connected to the destruction of the ancient Greek colony of Kaulon by Dionysius II of Syracuse, followed by another by the Campanians (allied of the Romans) in 277 BC.
