Transcript COKINTH, ANCIENTLY EPHYRE AND CORINTHUS, ON THE ISTHMUS WHICH JOINS PELOPONNESUS TO GREECE PROPER. " Urbs erat tunc praeclara ante excidium, arx quoque et isthmus prcebuere spectaculum : arx inter omnia in immanem altitudinem edita, scatens fontibus: Isthmus duo maria, ab occasu et ortu solis finitima, arctis faucibus dirimens." Liv. XLV. 28. " Corinth was then in the height of its splendour, but his attention was particularly attracted by the Citadel, which towers to an enormous height, and abounds with springs; and by the Isthmus, a very narrow neck of land, separating two seas, which approach as it were to meet from the east and west."—J. P. " Many a vanished year and age, And tempest's breath, and battle's rage, Have swept o'er Corinth; yet she stands A fortress formed to Freedom's hands; The whirlwind's wrath, the earthquake's shock, Have left untouched her hoary rock, The keystone of a land; which still, Though fallen, looks proudly on that hill, The land-mark to the double tide That purpling rolls on either side, As if their waters chafed to meet, Yet pause and crouch beneath her feet." Byron's Siege of Corinth. " His si tunc animis acies collata fuisset, Prodita non tantas vidisset Grcecia clades : Oppida semoto Pelopeia Marte vigerent: Starent Arcadiae, starent Lacedaemonis, arces: Non mare fumasset geminum flagrante Corintho, Nee fera Cecropias traxissent vincula matres. Ilia dies potuit nostris imponere finem Cladibus, et sceleris caussas auferre futuri." Claudian. in Ruf. II. 186.
