Rich Corinthian Leather is the tune that is played after a victory by conquest and you navigate the post-game achievements screen.

In the game, it is one of the few tunes (together with Quest for Butter, Uluzah, Carne y Helado and ...Where Credit is Due) that is stored as an MP3 file and not played directly off the CD. The reason for this was to save disc space since they were not played during actual game action and were therefore less prominent.

A MIDI version of the track was also composed. While it was originally planned that the MIDI files were to be included in the game just like in the previous entry, the MIDI composition was eventually only used in the demo version of the game.

The very same song was also used in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors (W32)
