At the plain of Marathon, near the location of the historical battle between the Athenians and the Persians, is the Tomb or “Pile” as it is called by the people. There, are buried the cremated remains of the 192 soldiers who lost their life during the Battle of Marathon. Apart from the ashes they also found traces from the funerary dinner that their fellow soldiers organized in their honor. The Tomb of Marathon is the starting point for the annual Classical Marathon race.
