Modern Description: Pausanias calls a bath beyond Peirene on the Lechaion Road the most famous of the many baths in Corinth. Near the entrance stood statues of Poseidon, Leucothea, Palaimon on a dolphin and Artemis hunting. It was built by a member of the rich Laconian Euryclid clan. The walls were covered with revetment of different colored stones including Lapis Lacedaimonius from the family quarries at Croceae in Laconia. These baths were built in the Early Imperial period with extensive remodeling in the third quarter of the 1st century A.D. and, probably, in the 2nd century A.D. They went out of use in the second half of the 2nd century A.D. The Euryclids rose to prominence after the battle of Actium and the last of the line seems to have died in the early 2nd century. The remains of a large bath structure excavated on the east side of the Lechaion road have been identified with this building.
