Corinth (; Greek: Κόρινθος, Kórinthos) is a city and former municipality in Corinthia, Peloponnese, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Corinth, of which it is the seat and a municipal unit. It is the capital of Corinthia.

It was founded as Nea Korinthos or New Corinth in 1858 after an earthquake destroyed the existing settlement of Corinth, which had developed in and around the site of ancient Corinth.

Corinth derives its name from Ancient Corinth, a city-state of antiquity. In 1858, the old city, now known as Archaia Korinthos (Αρχαία Κόρινθος), located SW of the modern city, was totally destroyed by an earthquake. Nea Korinthos or New Corinth was then built on the coast of the Gulf of Corinth, repaired after a further earthquake in 1928, and rebuilt again after a great fire in 1933.
