Corinth was a Greek city-state located on the Isthmus of Corinth seperating the Peloponnese from mainland Greece. It was one of the oldest cities in Greece, as well as a chief exporter in pottery, bronze, wine and ivory statues.
Corinth is a city located near Cheiron's Academy and is the capitol of Corinthia. Jason is the Crown Prince - he inherited the throne when his father, King Aeson was killed by Ares (see Young Hercules (Movie Pilot)). In the episode 1.37 - The Head That Wears The Crown, Jason is crowned King of Corinth.
- Corinth hosted the Corinthian Games in 1.17 - Winner Take All.
- In Young Hercules: Cheiron's Warriors, Ares schemes to start a war between Corinth and the Centaur Nation by plotting to have a dozen centaurs kidnapped by slavers on Corinthian soil.
Corinth is well-known for its leather: Iolaus: "Hey, is that new? It looks like fine Corinthian leather. Almost fit for a king." (from 1.01 - Treasure of Zeus)Pelia: "Nice boots for a wanderer. Is that Corinthian leather?" (from 1.26 - Cold Feet)The two-level bireme and trireme were developed in Corinth.
After Sisyphus' death, Jason would become King of Corinth again. He would abdicate, however, in order to marry Alcmene. Iphicles succeeded him as King.
Hercules had a birthday party at Iphicles' castle in Corinth, however it was interrupted by Callisto.
