It was capital of the Achaean League but was severly defeated by the Romans in BC. Corinth was officially founded by the Roman Empire by Julius Caesar. The life of Julius Caesar spans one of the most fascinating and important periods in all of Ancient history, and this book does an excellent job of bringing all the characters of the age to life. The first century B.C. saw the collapse of a corrupt republic, a number of savage civil wars, and the rise of a relatively benign tyranny under Caesar.
