Keramikos is a neighborhood in downtown Athens, Greece near the ancient cemetery of Kerameikos. A 5' walk from the Plaka and the Monastiraki area, this site is where the most important ancient Athenian citizens were buried. Kerameikos was named after the community of the potters (kerameis) who occupied the whole area along the banks of river Eridanos.
The "inner Kerameikos" (from the Greek Agora to the Dipylon and Sacred Gates) was the "potter's quarter" of the city. The "outer Kerameikos" (from the city walls towards the Academy), included the famous cemetery and the "demosion sema" (public burial monument) where Perikles delivered his funeral oration in 431 B.C.
