Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the topic of Corinth during the interim period using all currently available evidence. It first updates the state of research on the interim period. Over the past several years there have been rapid developments relating to the recent excavations in the Panayia Field and new arguments for the nature of the interim period settlement and its inhabitants. The chapter then argues for continuity from the interim period into the late 1st century BCE and explores its implications for the early colony. Although the archaeological record does not directly attest to activity in the generation or so before the foundation of the colony, the material record indicates strong connections between the late Hellenistic and Augustan periods. Finally, the chapter suggests how some members of the interim period community may have been incorporated into the fabric of the early colony.

Keywords: Augustan periods; Corinth; interim period; late Hellenistic period; Roman colony
