Modern Corinth is located around 3km to the SW of the ancient city. The main structure that dominates the old city is the temple of Apollo. (See references to Apollo under the Acrocorinth) Images of the standing columns from the temple are illustrated below: Many of the finds from the excavations are housed within the museum of ancient Corinth on the site. Within these finds there are numerous vessels, but most spectacular are the ornate mosaics and the impressive set of roman armour.

To corinthianise means to corrupt, and so prolific was the immoral conduct of Corinth, it became renown through the Greek world.
