This is the site report from the excavation of the cemetery in Corinth and represents a continuation of the report from the 1929 season, which began the excavation. Unlike other sections of Corinth, which was completely destroyed by the Romans under Mummius in 146 BC, the grave sites still contain remnants of pre-Roman Corinth, reflecting the city in its glory days as one of the most wealthy and powerful poleis of Greece due to its control of the isthmus of Corinth. Included in the report are photographs of some of the highlights of the finds made, including pottery and metal bowls and vases, funeral stelai, inscriptions, and statuettes. The site is interesting for its record of Corinthian funerary custom over a lengthy period of time, from the so-called Dark Age to the Classical era.
