The topic concerns Dr. James Wiseman's current research and that of several other scholars regarding an earlier excavation of his in Corinth, Greece. They are preparing the final publication of this site, which is a large complex both of Greek and Roman times—about a thousand years—including an underground bathing room, a nymphaeum, and an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by a courtyard with a large exedra.
