'''Tanah Genting Korintus''' adalah jembatan darat sempit yang menghubungkan Semenanjung [[PeloponnesePeloponnesos]] dengan sisa daratan [[Yunani]], di dekat kota [[Korintus]]. The word "[[isthmus]]" comes from the [[Ancient Greece|Ancient Greek]] word for "neck" and refers to the narrowness of the land.<ref>[[LSJ]] entry [http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.04.0057%3Aentry%3D*)isqmo%2Fs ισθμός]</ref> The Isthmus was known in the ancient world as the landmark separating the Peloponnese from mainland Greece. In the first century AD the geographer [[Strabo]]<ref>[http://perseus.uchicago.edu/perseus-cgi/citequery3.pl?dbname=GreekFeb2011&query=Str.%209.1.6&getid=2 Strabo, ''Geography''. 9.1.6].</ref> noted a [[stele]] on the Isthmus of Corinth, which bore two [[inscription]]s. One towards the East, i.e. towards [[Megara]], reading: "''Here is not Peloponnesus, but [[Ionia]]''" ({{lang|grc|τάδ᾽ οὐχὶ Πελοπόννησος, ἀλλ᾽ Ἰωνία}}) and the one towards the West, i.e. towards the Peloponnese: "''Here is Peloponnesus, not Ionia''" ({{lang|grc|τάδ᾽ ἐστὶ Πελοπόννησος, οὐκ Ἰωνία}}); [[Plutarch]] ascribed the erection of the stele to the Attic hero [[Theseus]], on his way to [[Athens]].<ref>[[Plutarch]], Parallel Lives , Theseus [http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A2008.01.0067%3Achapter%3D25 Plut.
