An empire fails generally due to overexploitation and they begin to loose their resources. Empires tend to loose money since they're extremely expensive to uphold. All of their natural resources begin to diminish.

Archaeology adds another twist to Rome's foundation story by ageing it 100 years
The Conversation
There were also Greek legends that the hero Aeneas escaped the fall of Troy and came to Italy, where his son or grandson founded Rome.
Sabrina Levin's insight:

This article talks about a twist in Rome's discovery. A push back of 100 years of the age of Rome. It is said that Romulius and Remus founded Rome over 2,000 years ago and to be exact it was the 21st of April, 753 BC. The article questions why people find specific dates so significant and how hard it is to believe that Rome would be celebrating its' "birthday" in a few days.

This webpage offers a clean and organized way of showing the reasons for Greece's and Rome's reasons for collapsing. Keep in mind that this is a teacher's handout so you can use the information as a starting point, but probably won't work as a source itself.
