Located outside the ancient city, the Kerameikos Cemetery takes its name from the clay ( kéramos ) used to make the vases and funerary objects that were set out around the deceased. From the 6C BC, in line with the fortune - and vanity - of the dead person, the tombs were decorated with stelae, stone vases, statues or even small chapels. The latter structures were at their most opulent in the century of Pericles.
