The fertile land of Ancient Teneas, the plain and surrounding hills, was known from the Mycenaean period. The agricultural products of the area were exquisite and part of the diet of the inhabitants of neighboring cities.
The need for intensive cultivation of the Tenean land must have been the cause which, according to Pausanias, was inhabited by Trojan prisoners, who were transported by force from Tenedos and with the permission of Agamemnon, settled in Ancient Teneas. That is why there is the nomenclature of affinity.
In the area of Ancient Teneas, Oedipus, whose adopted father was Polybos, Tiranos of Corinth, spent his childhood.
The prosperity of Tenera opened far-off horizons when, in 734-733 BC, many Tinatians, under the Corinthian leader, colonized Syracuse of Italy.
For the products of Teneas, a sea trade route was opened, which contributed to the prosperity of the wider region.
The commercial connection and the good relationship of Teneas and Syracuse were the cause that Tenera remained intact and prosperous when in 146 BC, the Roman Legions under LuciusMummius, destroyed Corinth.
During the recent excavations of the Ministry of Culture in Chiliomodi, Corinth, the ancient city was found.

A fact that certifies the timeless prosperity of the city and its inhabitants.
