The Akrokorinth, also spelled Akro-Korinth, was an acropolis above the polis Korinth in Korinthia, Greece. The immense hill was the site of the city's Temple of Aphrodite which was renowned for its hetaerae during the 5th century BCE.
By the time of the Peloponnesian War, the hetaerae of Korinth fled to the temple in fear of the Monger, a thug and a member of the Cult of Kosmos who sought to control them. Around the same time, the Spartan misthios Kassandra visited the Akrokorinth in search of information about her mother's whereabouts. Alkibiades told her to look for a hetaera by the name of Anthousa. Reaching the temple, Kassandra met with thugs threatening the worshippers, though she dispatched them quickly. She then talked to some of the worshippers about the location of the hetaerae, and information on the Monger. The worshippers pointed her in the direction of the Spring of Peirene.
When Kassandra found the Spring, she met Anthousa. To Kassandra's surprise her friend Phoibe was also there and told Anthousa of the misthios. Moving away from prying eyes and ears, Kassandra asked Anthousa for information on her mother, though Anthousa needed a favor done first. Her hetaerae needed help in dealing with the Monger once and for all. Kassandra talked to the hetaera Damalis who asked for help in finding out why one her regular clients had changed their demeanor. Kassandra agreed and headed to their residence in Korinth.
