The banner of Korinthia

Korinthia is a regional unit of Greece in the Peloponnese. Named after its main city, Korinth, the area encompassed part of the Isthmus of Poseidon, the only land route between the Peloponnese and Attika, and was strategically placed in times of war between Sparta and Athens.

The land was also renowned for its abundance of clay pits, with the resulting pottery production forming a principal part of its economy during the 5th century BCE. Another thing Korinthia, and especially Korinth, was famous for were the hetaerae.[1]

While there, Kassandra also met the Spartan officer Brasidas, who had been sent to assist Korinth with The Monger situation.[1]

Regions

The region of Korinthia was made up of seven smaller regions:
