Hexamilion

Hexamilion 2 (CM)

The trans-Isthmus “Hexamilion” wall, running 7 kilometers across the Isthmus of Corinth, constructed in the 5th century AD, with later episodic refurbishments.  In the day of its construction, it must have fundamentally altered the human landscape, the regional economy, and the local demands for labor.  Photos by D. Pettegrew 2005 and 2007.
