The Lechaeum Road connected the port of Lechaeum with the forum of Corinth two miles to the south. In this view from the north, with Acrocorinth in the background, we see the paved road and, on either side of it, paved footpaths with gutters for collecting rainwater. At the end of the Lechaeum Road stood the propylaea, a large arch that formed a grand entryway to the Corinth forum. The two foundations of the propylaea’s piers are slightly visible at the top of the steps, in front of two trees.
