Derveni, Corinthia

Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Derveni is a town in Corinthia, Greece. It is the seat of the municipality Evrostini. Corinthia is the area around the city of Corinth. Presently, it is a prefecture of Greece, part of the periphery of Peloponnese. It is the third-most populated prefecture on the Peloponnese peninsula and the largest in the region since the 1980s when it surpassed the neighboring Arcadia's population in which it is now placed below. In 2001, Corinthia’s population stood at 144,527 residents. The Corinth Canal, carrying ship traffic between the northern Mediterranean and the Aegean, is about 4 kilometers east of Corinth, cutting through the Isthmus of Corinth.

Greece officially the Hellenic Republic is a country in south-eastern Europe, situated on the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula. The Aegean Sea lies to the east of mainland Greece while the Ionian Sea lies to the west. Greece is a developed country, member of the European Union since 1981 and a member of the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union since 2001. The shores of Greece's Aegean Sea saw the emergence of the first advanced civilizations in Europe whose impact is inseparable from today's western institutions. Following the emergence of the Greek-speaking Byzantine Empire and 400 years of Ottoman control the Modern Greek state evolved after 1821-1830 as an independent Kingdom.
