corinth thread Bernd 04/21/2019 (Sun) 16:09:51 [Preview] No. 24997
While everyone remembers athens, sparta and thebes people usually forget the resident punching bag of ancient greece corinth. Corinth basically had to deal with three bigger powers than it and got fucked over.

I just remember it from the Corinth league that Alexander was in, that one Aphrodite temple, and Paul's epistle.

Established I mean.

The famous greek helmet was actually made in corinth. I also know that rome completely destroyed corinth.

They were also in the way for everyone.
All right. But what was their advantage?

This shit also named after them. Not sure their role in it's development.

uh trade maybe then?

"In classical times, Corinth rivaled Athens and Thebes in wealth, based on the Isthmian traffic and trade"

"In 146 BC, Rome declared war on the Achaean League and, after victories over league forces in the summer of that year, the Romans under Lucius Mummius besieged and captured Corinth. When he entered the city, Mummius killed all the men and sold the women and children into slavery before burning the city"

just roman things

Apparently there's an ongoing excavation in Corinth from 1896.
The Princton's press published a book of many volumes of these works. Some can be found on libgen.

but they built roads so it's okay to rape them into non existence

It's like slut shaming. If you didn't want to be looted and plundered you shouldn't have built such infrastructure.

Rome did the same thing to carthage as well. Sucks but hey atleast rome still exists and proceeded to make the entire planet worse by housing the vatican.

What Bernd thinks how reliable of our knowledge on ancient Grease (and partially Rome)?
As Byzantium disintegrated through the centuries, waves of Byzantine-Greek scholars fled to west, chiefly during renaissance, in fact them playing a great part as the engine of renaissance itself. They also figured out they could live quite comfortably as long as they could supply their contemporaries with ancient Greek written sources and artifacts, but material can only survive that much, so they made a lot up by themselves, well let's be blunt they forged as much shit as they could.
Knowing that very little (if any) original sources remained from the antiquity, and everything is a copy of a copy of a copy, and how easy had to be to paste in whatever they wanted, basically what we know, is a renaissance fairytale.
Does Bernd know works in history, art history, philosophy, etc. with the topic of the forgeries of the renaissance?

I think before the Hellenistic period, forgeries and fakes are far more common. But by the time of
Perhaps a lot of statues however (specifically from Italy, Greece and western Anatolia) are forgeries however.

*time after Alexander, it's far less likely that things are forgeries.
Also, I'm Danebernd, using .org

Here I found something, coincidentally(?) it is about Alexander:
The whole letter doesn't interest me but below there are some lines:
>With a more knowledge of history of texts, the problems with the letter become even clearer. For instance, it is known that while no certainly genuine letter from Alexander survives, a number of fake letters were composed during the middle ages. So perhaps the letter above was a medieval fake (and thus an interesting document in itself)?
>We know all the (purported) ancient letters of Alexander (including to Aristotle!), and the heavy odds are that none of them are genuine, but rather ancient forgeries.
Ofc, neither of these two quotes talks about renaissance forgeries, but nice additions to the topic.

Found some more. This article just gushing how renaissance authors put the reality into it's place and debunked so many forgers, they are the good guys clap clap. Very suspicious if you ask me.
But it mentions a naem: Jean Hardouin! Here's a blogpost about him and his idea (with a curious Hungarian comment at the end...)
I think I could go ahead and try to find out more about Hardouin's opinion, mostly coincides with what I'm looking for, except he points directly to a couple of people, and these blogposters and article writers make it sounds like it's a conspiracy theory.
