Corinth was a city-state in Ancient Greece, located between its rival states, Sparta and Athens. In Greek mythology, it was founded by Corinthos, who was a descendant of the god of sun Helios. Other sources suggest that the city was actually founded by the goddess Ephyra, daughter of the Titan god Oceanus. One of the better known kings of Corinth was Sisyphus, who was condemned in the afterlife to eternally roll a boulder uphill, while during the Trojan War, the leader of the Corinthians was Agamemnon, brother of the king of Sparta, Menelaus.
