The remains of the ancient Greek city-state of Corinth, Greece.
The Corinthian land is a portion of the Argive, and is named after Corinthus. That Corinthus was a son of Zeus I have never known anybody say seriously except the majority of the Corinthians.
Eumelus, the son of Amphilytus, of the family called Bacchidae, who is said to have composed the epic poem, says in his Corinthian History (if indeed the history be his) that Ephyra, the daughter of Oceanus, dwelt first in this land;
that afterwards Marathon, the son of Epopeus, the son of Aloeus, the son of Helius (Sun), fleeing from the lawless violence of his father migrated to the sea coast of Attica;
that on the death of Epopeus he came to Peloponnesus, divided his kingdom among his sons, and returned to Attica;
and that Asopia was renamed after Sicyon, and Ephyraea after Corinthus.
