  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Corinth 
  a  Grecian  city,  on  the  isthmus  which  joins  the  Peloponnesus  to 
  the  mainland  of  Greece.  It  is  about  48  miles  west  of  Athens.  The 
  ancient  city  was  destroyed  by  the  Romans  (B.C.  146),  and  that 
  mentioned  in  the  New  Testament  was  quite  a  new  city,  having  been 
  rebuilt  about  a  century  afterwards  and  peopled  by  a  colony  of 
  freedmen  from  Rome.  It  became  under  the  Romans  the  seat  of 
  government  for  Southern  Greece  or  Achaia  (Acts  18:12-16).  It  was 
  noted  for  its  wealth,  and  for  the  luxurious  and  immoral  and 
  vicious  habits  of  the  people.  It  had  a  large  mixed  population  of 
  Romans,  Greeks,  and  Jews.  When  Paul  first  visited  the  city  (A.D. 
  51  or  52),  Gallio,  the  brother  of  Seneca,  was  proconsul.  Here 
  Paul  resided  for  eighteen  months  (18:1-18).  Here  he  first  became 
  aquainted  with  Aquila  and  Priscilla,  and  soon  after  his 
  departure  Apollos  came  to  it  from  Ephesus.  After  an  interval  he 
  visited  it  a  second  time,  and  remained  for  three  months  (20:3). 
  During  this  second  visit  his  Epistle  to  the  Romans  was  written 
  (probably  A.D.  55).  Although  there  were  many  Jewish  converts  at 
  Corinth,  yet  the  Gentile  element  prevailed  in  the  church  there 
 
  Some  have  argued  from  2  Cor.  12:14;  13:1,  that  Paul  visited 
  Corinth  a  third  time  (i.e.,  that  on  some  unrecorded  occasion  he 
  visited  the  city  between  what  are  usually  called  the  first  and 
  second  visits).  But  the  passages  referred  to  only  indicate 
  Paul's  intention  to  visit  Corinth  (comp.  1  Cor.  16:5,  where  the 
  Greek  present  tense  denotes  an  intention),  an  intention  which 
  was  in  some  way  frustrated.  We  can  hardly  suppose  that  such  a 
  visit  could  have  been  made  by  the  apostle  without  more  distinct 
  reference  to  it 
 
 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]: 
 
  Corinth,  which  is  satisfied;  ornament;  beauty
