Original 4th century marble bull of the tomb of Dionysios of Kollystos in the Kerameikos museum atrium. Athens. Greece. The impressive marble bull was removed and replaced with a copy from its location on the street of the tombs for preservation. Serving as a burial ground as long ago as the 12th century BC, Kerameikos located in the ancient neighbourhood of potters contains part of the ancient city walls and the Dipylon, the main gate of Ancient Athens at a junction of the Sacred Way and Panathenaic Way. It served as a burial ground for the richest and most distinguished citizens of the city.
