The American School of Classical Studies at Athens

Visiting the Site and Museum

The site of Corinth is administered by the 37th Ephoreia of the Greek Archaeological Service. The museum is located within the archaeological site and houses the catalogued finds from the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA), Corinth Excavations. The museum consists of sculpture, ceramics, and miscellanrous objects from Geometric through medieval periods deriving from excavations in and around Corinth. A selection of these are on display throughout the galleries, colonnades, and large courtyard.

With funding from the Third European Union package, the Ephoreia, in collaboration with the ASCSA, prepared two new exhibit rooms.  The Asklepieion gallery was renovated in 2012 and displays, in addition to the terracottas from the sanctuary, the gold-guilded marble small scale statue of Asklepius from the recent ASCSA excavations at Panayia Field.  A Prehistoric gallery exhibits Neolithic and Bronze Age material culture from the ASCSA excavations on the main archaeological site, from C. W. Blegen’s excavations at Korakou and Zygouries, and material originating from Athikia.
