This site report details the finding of a complicated site in the city of Corinth where a series of Stoai and temples were built over the course of many years. The report includes remains of pre-Roman buildings in poor condition following the razing of the city by Mummius in 146 BC as well as later remains giving valuable information about the economic life of this key trading city. The report includes diagrams and photographs of the site and its excavation history, interesting as much for the process of making sense of a very difficult and layered site as for the site itself. This article is useful for showing the complexities involved in such layered sites and for information on the economic heart of both Greek and Roman Corinth.
