Corinth, a city of Greece
STRONGS NT 2882: Κόρινθος
Κόρινθος, Κορινθου, ἡ, Corinth, the metropolis of Achaia proper, situated on the isthmus of the Peloponnesus between the Aegean and Ionian Seas (hence called bimaris, Horace car. 1, 7, 2; Ovid. metam. 5, 407), and having two harbors, one of which called Cenchreae (see Κεγχρεαί) was the roadstead for ships from Asia, the other, called Lechaeon or Lechaeum, for ships from Italy. It was utterly destroyed by L. Mummius, the Roman consul, in the Achaean war, <146 b.c.="">; but after the lapse of a century it was rebuilt by Julius Caesar (<44 b.c.="">). It was eminent in commerce and wealth, in literature and the arts, especially the study of rhetoric and philosophy; but it was notorious also for luxury and moral corruption, particularly the foul worship of Venus. Paul came to the city in his second missionary journey (circa) <53>A.D. 53 or 54, and founded there a Christian church: Acts 18:1; Acts 19:1; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 2 Corinthians 1:1, 23; 2 Timothy 4:20. (BB. DD. under the word; Dict. of Geogr. under the word; Lewin, St. Paul, i. 269ff.)<1>
