The Athenian Kerameikos (1991), J. Binder's translation of Ursula Knigge's guide to the Kerameikos, Der Kerameikos von Athen: Führung durch Ausgrabungen und Geschichte (Athens: Krene Verlag, 1988), may be difficult to find outside Greece, but the Blue Guide to Greece has a useful overview of the cemetery and its monuments as well as of the Dêmosion Sêma. For the evidence concerning state burials in particular, see C. Clairmont's "New Evidence for a Polyandrion in the Dêmosion Sêma of Athens?," JHS 101 (1981), pp. 132-134, and Patrios Nomos. Public Burial at Athens During the Fifth and Fourth Centuries B.C. (BAR 161), (Oxford 1983). For a detailed account of the "Tomb of Chabrias," see A. Mallwitz, "Das Staatsgrab am 3. Horos," pp. 99-125 in Kerameikos XII: Rundbauten im Kerameikos (Berlin 1980); for the grave of the Spartan casualties of 403 B.C. see, F. Willemsen, "Zu dem Lakedämoniergrab im Kerameikos," AM 92 (1977), pp. 117-157.
