Ancient Corinth was one of the most powerful Greek cities, which reached in the 5th century BCE number of 90,000 inhabitants. In the 2nd century CE, the city continued to thrive, as evidenced by the animation created.

The reconstruction shows us the central part of the Agora, the temple of Apollo, the theatre, the hippodrome, the gymnasium, the temple of Asclepius and the amphitheatre. Corinth guarded the isthmus between Greece and the Peloponnese, which only allowed it to enrich itself and be an important trading post.

Many fragments of buildings from Roman times (1st century CE) have survived to our times, including the remains of the great forum, the temple of Octavia, baths and the aforementioned temple of Asclepius. Numerous well-preserved mosaics (mainly showing Dionysus), Greek and Roman busts (including a large collection of Roman rulers) and examples of Greek ceramics were also found in the city.
