Kerameikos

Caption:
The Kerameikos. The proteichisma and moat between the Dipylon and Sacred Gates are at the left. This area contained various tombs. In front of the moat, just above center in the photo, archaeologists found more than 7000 ostraka dumped into the fill of the old (pre-478 B.C.) bed of the Eridanos River. View from the north.

For the proteichisma, see Knigge 1991, pp. 76-79, no. 5. For the area outside (west of) the city wall between the Dromos and the Sacred Way, see Knigge 1991, pp. 155-157, no. 58.
