Corinth, Corinthia, Greece, c. 345 - 307 B.C.
|Corinth|, |Corinth,| |Corinthia,| |Greece,| |c.| |345| |-| |307| |B.C.|, During the Greek War of Independence, 1821- 1830, Corinth was destroyed by the Turkish forces. The city was officially liberated in 1832 after the Treaty of London. In 1833, the site was considered among the candidates for the new capital city of the recently founded Kingdom of Greece, due to its historical significance and strategic position. Athens, then an insignificant town, was chosen instead. In 1858, the village surrounding the ruins of Ancient Corinth was totally destroyed by an earthquake, leading to the founding of New Corinth 3 km (1.9 mi) NE of the ancient city.
