ANCIENT Corinth was one of the most powerful and important of the Greek city-states, and not only was it a city visited by Antinous and Hadrian, Corinth was also the site of a Temple of Antinous.
It was a city fabled for its sorcerers and seers. To this day, tour guides like to warn visitors (in a jocular fashion) about the "curse" that lies over the ruins.
We know that a Temple to Antinous was located there because there is a documented record listing a man called Hostilius Marcellus as high priest of Antinous at Corinth.
Archaeologists have even unearthed docks and port facilities where Antinous came ashore at Corinth.
Now animator extraordinaire Danila Loginov has recreated Corinth during the time of that great temple of Antinous in virtual reality.
The recreation reveals the whole ancient city, the central part with Agora, temple of Apollon, theater and Odeon, and also hippodrome, gymnasium, temple of Aesculapius and amphitheatre. Near the city is Acrocorinth mountain with fortress and temples.
