  • "At sea once more we had to pass the Sirens , whose sweet singing lures sailors to their doom. I had stopped up the ears of my crew with wax, and I alone listened while lashed to the mast, powerless to steer toward shipwreck. Next came Charybdis , who swallows the sea in a whirlpool, then spits it up again. Avoiding this we skirted the cliff where Scylla exacts her toll. Each of her six slavering maws grabbed a sailor and wolfed him down. Finally we were becalmed on the island of the Sun. My men disregarded all warnings and sacrificed his cattle, so back at sea Zeus sent a thunderbolt that smashed the ship. I alone survived, washing up on the island of Calypso.

  • The tyrant of Corinth, Periander , was the first who envisioned the Corinth Canal in 602BC , The first serious attempt at the canals construction was by Emperor Nero , who in 67AD , The idea for the canal was left unfinished, until it was revived again during the late 1800’s . After several false starts, the Corinth Canal was finally completed , and put in use, on October 28th 1893 . The work on the canal was carried out by a combination of French and Greek workmen.

Here they built in 1415 the magnificent castle of St.Peter, one of the greatest medieval monuments of the world, and the town was thereafter known as Petrium in reference to its castle; Turks pronounced it Bodrum. Knights, in 1494, used remains fo maus to fortify castle
