Abstract

In this paper, the AA. present geomorphological and geo-scientific evidence of repeated tsunami impact on Lechaion, the harbour of ancient Corinth and adjacent coastal zones of the Gulf of Corinth. Geomorphological, sedimentological, geoarchaeological, geochemical and microfaunal studies as well as geophysical methods revealed evidence of multiple palaeotsunami landfall at the harbour site and surrounding coastal area. Tsunami signatures include coarse-grained, sandy to gravelly allochthonous marine sediments intersecting silt-dominated quiescent harbour deposits, geo-archaeological destruction layers as well as extensive units of beachrock-type calcarenitic tsunamites. A local event-geochronostratigraphy was established by radiocarbon dating and geoarchaeological findings
