Even an Earthquake?

A close one for Corinth.  An earthquake of 4.5 just east of Kenchreai. 

This week has been a page out of a late antique chronicle.

“Sirmium was struck with lightning, which consumed the palace and the market-place. This was thought by persons versed in such occurrences to be an omen of evil to public affairs. Earthquakes likewise happened in many places. Crete was very much shaken, as was likewise the Peloponnese, and all Greece, many places being destroyed; indeed, almost all were overturned.”
