Corinth is a city of Greece. It is well known because its name is also that of the isthmus which separates the Peloponnese from the continent, and also that of a canal. The Ancient Corinth site is about 5 km south-west of the modern city. It was occupied since the Neolithic and suffered a destruction at the beginning of the second millennium, but apparently without interrupting the human occupation.

Thus its existence in the Bronze Age is proved, and it is probably under the toponym "Korito" that Corinth is designated in Linear B, even if the potteries recovered dating from this Mycenaean period are not numerous. This name, Korito, or Corito, is also used locally. The Turks have the word "Kordos".

My notes of veracity :

Corinth was designated "Korito" in linear B: 3/5
