The fountain of Glauce in Corinth was named for the Corinthian princess poisoned by Medea who was said to have thrown herself into its waters to quench the burning of her poisoned garments. Mentioned by Pausanias in his ancient guide to the cities of Greece, the fountain was an impressive local landmark in Roman Corinth. The site is important since few ancient fountains survive in as intact a form as this does. In this paper Elderkin gives a detailed description of its remains and the engineering methods used in its construction. This piece is of interest to students of ancient waterworks and plumbing as well as those interested in public art of Greece.
