Adler number: kappa,1356
Translated headword: Kerameikoi, Potters' Quarters
Vetting Status: high
There were two Kerameikoi [sc. in Athens], one inside the city, the other outside, where they used to give a public burial to those who had died in war, and make the funeral speeches.
Greek Original:
*kerameikoi/: du/o h)=san *kerameikoi/, o( me\n e)/ndon th=s po/lews, o( de\ e)/cw: e)/nqa kai\ tou\s e)n pole/mw| teleuth/santas e)/qapton dhmosi/a| kai\ tou\s e)pitafi/ous e)/legon.
Abridged from Harpokration s.v. Kerameikos, commenting on Antiphon fr. 41 Sauppe (and citing Callikrates/Menecles [FGrH 370 F4b] for the information given).
See also kappa 1354, kappa 1355, kappa 1357, and (on the Kleisthenic deme Kerameis, within it) kappa 1360. Modern scholars prefer to define the Kerameikos not as two locations but a single, large one in NW Athens, stretching from the Agora to the Dipylon Gate and the extramural cemetery beyond.
