Early Helladic II Period of Greece
This culture is defined stratigraphically at Eutresis and Tsoungiza above Early Helladic I levels of the Eutresis culture and at Eutresis, Lerna, Tiryns, and Tsoungiza below Early Helladic III levels of the Tiryns culture.
The Korakou culture is widely distributed all over the Peloponnese, Attica, Euboea, Boeotia, Phocis, Locris, and as far west as the island of Lefkas. Pottery typical of the Korakou culture is found in late Rachmani levels at Pefkakia (near Volos in Thessaly), in Early Minoan II levels at Knossos in Crete, and in Keros-Syros culture levels at sites such as Skarkos (Ios) and Ayia Irini (Keos) in the Cyclades. Many settlements of this culture, especially in the Argolid (e.g. Lerna, Tiryns), suffer burnt destructions before being either abandoned or reoccupied by bearers of the Tiryns culture, but at Eutresis in Boeotia and at Kolonna on Aegina there is said to be a smooth and peaceful transition to the new Tiryns culture.
