Kerameikos: the Athenian Necropolis

Kerameikos: the Athenian Necropolis

The Athenians chose the most beautiful suburb of their city as a cemetery for their glorious dead heroes, their families, and the occasional blood-thirsty tyrant. And because they were Greeks, they made sure to adorn their tombs with exquisite works of art that remain elegant and poignant, capturing our imagination with their timeless beauty.

A tour by

Leonidas Argyros
