This article is little more than a placeholder for Corinthia. You can help Conan Wiki by expanding it.
Corinthia is a country of the Hyborian Age.
We have very little in this section just yet. You can help Conan Wiki by adding something.
History and politics Edit
Corinthia paid tribute to Aquilonia and was forced to lend aid to wars.
Later, while Aquilonia was being assaulted by the Picts, Corinthia followed the example of Zingara and found the opportunity to throw off the yoke. Mercenaries and vassals mutinied and returned to their countries.
Population and culture Edit
The Maze district is a tangle of muddy, winding alleys and sordid dens, frequented by the bolder thieves in the kingdom. It is indeed a maze of black alleys and enclosed courts and devious ways and shadowed plazas; of furtive sounds, and stenches. There is no paving on the streets; mud and filth mingles in an unsavory mess. Sewers are unknown; refuse is dumped into the alleys to form reeking heaps and puddles. Unless a man walks with care he is likely to lose his footing and plunge waist-deep into nauseous pools. Nor is it uncommon to stumble over a corpse. A death cry on darkened stairs is nothing unusual.
Aristocracy occupies purple-towered marble and ivory palaces. There is a curtained door into a well-lighted broad circular chamber, banded by a gallery half-way between the polished floor and the lofty ceiling. There is an ornate mahogany table, loaded with vessels of wine and rich viands. There are broad mirrors on the walls, with velvet hangings between. There are silken couches, chairs of ebony and ivory.
Swaggering Corinthian mercenaries swill and wench all night and fight all day.
Priests of Anu.
