Corinth: Portal to the West

Corinth lay on an isthmus between mainland Greece and the southern peninsula, the Peloponnese. The isthmus was less than six kilometers (4 miles) wide at its narrowest point, so Corinth had two ports. Lechaion lay on the Gulf of Corinth, serving sea routes heading westward to Italy, Sicily, and Spain. On the Saronic Gulf, Kenchreai served maritime traffic to and from the Aegean region, Asia Minor, Syria, and Egypt.
