Description : Corinth (; Modern Greek: Κόρινθος, Kórinthos, pronounced [ˈkorinθos] (listen); Ancient (Doric) Greek: Ϙόρινθος Kórinthos) is an ancient city and former municipality in Corinthia, Peloponnese, which is located in south-central Greece.

It was founded as Nea Korinthos or New Corinth (Νέα Κόρινθος) in 1858 after an earthquake destroyed the existing settlement of Corinth, which had developed in and around the site of ancient Corinth.
