Corinth is an Important city in classical age Greece. The city acts as a Canal and makes the Peloponesian Peninsula into an island. this is because if you build it you would be able to sail ships all the way around the peloponesian. so this city is very strategic if you control it. its unclear when this city was founded and named corinth for the first time. but humans have lived here for many thousands of years dating back to about 6500 BC which is long before the game begins in 4000 BC.
