The region of Daunia was located along the Adriatic Sea in the region of southern Italy known in antiquity as Magna Graecia, the native Daunians lived in close proximity to Greek settlements. The native Italic peoples produced their own distinctive ceramic pottery between the 6th and 4th centuries B.C.
