The Corinthian capitols we learned about in school came from the old city of Corinth. There is a huge canal there now joining the two seas..the Ionian and Agean. The old city as prosperous transporting goods or even whole ships across the isthmus where the canal is now. No wonder it was a city of big commerce. All the places we visit where there are ruins we see lot and lots of stones around looking to me like big puzzle pieces, that belong to the ruins. Jigsaw puzzle lovers should help out with these giant puzzles!
