WHAT YOU VISIT
- Corinth, Greece's wealthiest city, once boasted a forum larger than
Rome. Famed also for its wicked ways, the city was introduced to Christianity by
St. Paul. You will see the remains of the paved, 25-foot-wide Lechaion Road and Doric Temple of Apollo.
- The museum houses an impressive collection of antiquities unearthed from the ruins. Most of the antiquities, including superb mosaics, are Roman in

rebuilt as a Roman colony.
which was dedicated to the Virgin Athena, the white pentelic marble temple was built 447 - 437
B.C. Beyond the Parthenon, lies the Erechteion, a temple honoring Athena
and the sea god Poseidon. The graceful Porch of the Caryatids features columns of lovely maids supporting the roof of the temple.
