Archea Korinthos (Old Corinth) in Corinthia Regional Unit, Peloponnese Region, Greece
The characteristic of the roman urban planning are the large roads (avenues). They cross the city, intersect in its center and end in the gates: the so called "cardo", from north to south and the "decumanus", from east to west. At the intersection of the main roads was situated the Agora, "forum", i.e. the main social and religious center, an open space, bordered by colonnades and monumental buildings.

More about this marker. With regards to the location of all of the markers in the Archaeological Park of Ancient Corinth, when going online and researching directional information, I could not locate any websites, or any online maps, that provided the names of the local streets, so it was difficult for me to provide accurate
One online site provided the following directions for getting to the archaeological park: "By car: 90 minutes from Athens. The exit to Ancient Corinth, approaching from the north, is about 2 kilometers west of the Tripolis interchange. Warning: visitors familiar with the village before 1996 should take the Patras interchange not the new Tripolis highway to arrive from the other side of the village; no exit was constructed and a U-turn cannot be made for ten kilometers."
