The Corinth Canal is a 6-mile waterway that connects the Gulf of Corinth in the Ionian Sea with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea.  It is similar to the Panama Canal and makes the southern third of Greece into a huge island.

Corinth’s Fountain of Glauke was cut from the limestone ridge on which stands the Temple of Apollo (in background) and is believed to date to the sixth century B.C.  Inside it contain 4 reservoirs, which were supplied by a conduit and provided water for ancient Corinth.

Ancient Corinth – The Bema Seat (also called the "tribunal" or "judicial bench") was a platform on which a judge would sit as the people brought their cases before him while standing in the plaza below. This is one of those rare places where we can say that a certain biblical event took place. This place of judgment is mentioned in Acts 18, when Paul was brought before Gallio.
