The Battle of Stilo or Cape Colonna was fought on 13 or 14 July 982 near Crotone in Calabria between the forces of the Emperor Otto II and his Italo-Lombard allies and those of the Kalbid emir of Sicily, Abu al-Qasim (fr). Some sources claim that the Muslims received support from the Byzantines, in retaliation for Otto’s invasion of their province of Apulia, but this is unconfirmed.
