The Temple of Apollo in Corinth is situated on the so-called “temple hill,” where archaeological remains indicate prolonged and active human habitation. However, leveling works have erased certain phases of settlement. In the distant past, possibly until the early 2nd century BCE, the temple hill was not a standalone elevation but part of an elongated limestone ridge known as poros. This ridge extended continuously from the Lechaion road in the southwest over a distance of approximately 650 meters.
