is no longer inhabited by any of the old Corinthians, but by colonists sent out by the Romans. This change is due to the Achaean League.1
The Corinthians, being members of it, joined in the war against the Romans, which Critolaus, when appointed general of the Achaeans, brought about by persuading to revolt both the Achaeans and the majority of the Greeks outside the Peloponnesus
. When the Romans won the war, they carried out a general disarmament of the Greeks2
and dismantled the walls of such cities as were fortified. Corinth
was laid waste by Mummius, who at that time commanded the Romans in the field, and it is said that it was afterwards refounded by Caesar,3
who was the author of the present constitution of Rome
, too, they say, was refounded in his reign.
