Revisiting Ancient Corinth

Posted on January 17th, 2007 by

Bronwen Wickkiser returned to her graduate alma mater, the University of Texas (hook ’em horns!), in early January to talk with archaeologists, epigraphers, numismatists, and other scholars of Classics and Religious Studies from the US, Greece, Canada, and the UK about religion and society in the ancient city of Corinth. She gave a paper on Asklepios in Greek and Roman Corinth (the Greek city was razed by the Roman general Mummius in 146 BCE, and refounded as a freedmen’s colony by Julius Caesar in 44). Bronwen excavated at Corinth in 2000, so it was a homecoming on many levels. For more information on the conference, visit Corinth in Context: Comparative Perspectives on Religion and Society.
