The intervention of Corinth in the struggle between Lydia and Miletus was a result of its relation inaugurated with the last, during the Milesian War (624-412/11 B.C.). These relations were based on common interests: Corinth facilitated Miletus with the supply of sheep wool and was in turn, promoted in its trade with Egypt. So the commercial interests of Corinth were secured in Egypt by Miletus’ integrity while its relationship with Lydia was renewed and enforced.
