Life in a corinthian home

In ancient Greece, private buildings were usually humble structures, unlike many public magnificent constructions. Ancient Corinth’s districts have not been excavated yet. Only a few residences belonging to wealthy Corinthians have been found in various parts of the city. Households were run by women. They were responsible for raising their children and supervising the slaves, who were given the heaviest duties in the house. Men were usually absent, mainly occupied with political and professional engagements. At home, they had their own room, where they could hold banquets.
