    DescriptionThis study describes and interprets the graves and human remains of Roman and Byzantine date recovered by excavation between 1954 and 1976 in several locales around the Isthmian Sanctuary and the succeeding fortifications. This material provides important evidence for both death and life in the Greek countryside during the Late Roman to Early Byzantine periods. Examination of burial within the local settlement, comparative study of mortuary behavior, and analysis of skeletal morphology, ancient demography, oral health and paleopathology all contribute to a picture of the rural Corinthians over this transitional era as interactive, resilient and modestly innovative.

    Review quote
    Combined with the evidence from nearby Corinth, no other area of the Late Roman world is now so well-recorded, especially for its burial practices and human remains. With this material now published, new questions about urban and rural life, demography, disease, and burial practices in Late Antique Corinthia and beyond can be posed and new answers sought. -- Edward M. Schoolman, University of Nevada, Reno Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2013.04.21
