Battles of the Corinthian War

Battles of the Corinthian War
This map shows the main battles of the Corinthian War, a conflict that appeared to confirm Sparta as the leading power of Greece after the Persians imposed peace terms. The fighting started badly for Sparta, after their successful leader Lysander was killed at Haliartus (395 BC). In the following year the Spartans won inconclusive battles at Nemea (394 BC) and Coronea (394 BC) while their allies suffered a costly defeat at Naryx. The fighting then moved south to the area around Corinth. In 392 the Spartans and some Corinthian allies captured the port of Lechaeum, but two years later the area of Leuchaeum was the site of a rare defeat for their hoplites, at the hands of lighter troops. Aegina saw prolonged fighting in 390-388 BC, which caused some problems for the Athenians, before the war was ended by the King's Peace.
