U5a2b would seem more of Greek origin, considering that it is more in southern Italy above all Sicily, Calabria and Puglia or more Roman (Latin colonization)?

U5a2b has been found in Bronze Age Hungary and in a Scythian.

My mtdna is U5a2b5 and my maternal ancestry is from Cattolica Eraclea, Agrigento, Sicilia, my oldest maternal ancestor I found dates to the mid 1700’s from a neighbouring village Montallegro.

I'm U5a2b. Apulia, Francavilla Fontana, Brindisi/Taranto

Brindisi (Brundisium) and Taranto were both Greek and Roman colonies

Did you test with National Geographic? The furthest you got was U5a2b?

It could be both but I think U5a2b is more likely to be Roman than Greek, U5a2b isn’t generally found in Greeks, Greeks usually belong to other branches of U5.
 
Eraclea?
interesting name.

Yeah, there is the ancient ruins of the Greek city Eraclea Minoa not far from the village.
 
eraclea , once was capital of the veneti
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eraclea
The first certain settlement is that one of the Opitergians, between IV and III century before Christ.
Histrian, Liburnian and Opitergians illyrians side with Pompey in the civil war.

In the case of Cattolica Eraclea, it has absolutely nothing to do with the Veneti but with the ancient Greek city located on the Outskirts Eraclea Minoa, Eraclea means pride of Hera and is the female variant of Herakles or Ercole.
