Corinth today is a continuation of ancient Corinth.In 1858, the old city of Corinth, known as Ancient Corinth, was torn down by an earthquake. So, the city had to be rebuilt, this time in the southeast side of the ancient port of Lechaio, on the Corinthian Gulf.
Ancient Corinth is a very important city to ancient Peloponnese. The city’s history was influenced by its location, because it had under its control one region that belongs both on the east side to Korinthia region and on the northeast side to Argolis region. It bordered with Sicyon, Megara, Argos and Epidaurus. Ancient Corinth was in the crucial position of Isthmus and it constituted the most important commercial hub between Peloponnese and the rest of Greece. Corinth was the richest city in the ancient world.
