The defenses of Acrocorinth and the lower town by Rhys Carpenter( Book )

10 editions published in 1936 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The defensive walls that surrounded both the site of ancient Corinth and the citadel of Acrocorinth above it are the focus of this volume. The book starts with a detailed account of the classical fortifications on Acrocorinth. A narrative tracing the walls of the city is supplemented by an account of small-scale excavations in the northeast sector. The long walls to Lechaion protected traffic between the port and Corinth and these are discussed next. The book concludes with the description and discussion of the Byzantine, medieval, and later walls of Acrocorinth, an important strategic location from prehistory to the Ottoman period."--Publisher's website

Ancient Corinth : a guide to the excavations by American School of Classical Studies at Athens( Book )

25 editions published between 1927 and 1960 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first guide to the excavations at Corinth was written by Rhys Carpenter in 1928, being based in part on an account that had been presented by Harold North Fowler in Art and Archaeology for October 1922. A second edition, revised by Professor Carpenter, appeared in 1933. This was revised again by Charles H. Morgan in 1936 and by Oscar Broneer in 1947. A fifth edition, essentially a reprinting of the fourth, was issued in 1951. Although excavations on a large scale have not been conducted during the past three years, knowledge of the site has been increased through the publication of several new studies. The earlier text of the guidebook has therefore been revised and augmented, principally by Robert L. Scranton working at Corinth, and a few illustrations have been added. Much of the greater part of the book, however, is drawn unchanged from the preceding edition. - Preface / John L. Caskey, Director
