Kerameikos and a major strike

Well I was supposed to go to Kerameikos today, but you may have read about the strike that is going on here right now - long story short, I stayed at the library. Oh well, I've been there before and I've got some pretty interesting (and fresh) shots from the site.

This is kouros (early 6th century BC) by the Dipylos master and the latest major find from Kerameikos. Compare to the one in this post.

Detail of a grave stele from ca 600-550 BC, it was originally painted and had a stucco finish.
