This historic cemetery is a green oasis at the heart of Athens. It preserves part of one of the rivers of ancient Athens, one of the gates of the ancient walled city and numerous public and private grave monuments of great historical significance. Beautiful sculptures that served as grave markers are preserved in the Museum. Look out for the marble dog decorating a grave precinct, and for the case with finds from a communal grave of plague victims during the Peloponnesian War.
