 The Ancient City of Athens: City Eleusinion
As the urban “branch” of the sanctuary of Demeter and Kore at Eleusis, the City Eleusinion played a key role in the initial stages of the Greater Mysteries held each fall in the month of Boedromion (corresponding to September in the modern calendar).
It is likely that City Eleusinion was also one of multiple locations in Athens used for celebrations of the Thesmophoria, an ancient festival of Demeter and Kore celebrated throughout the Greek world but open only to the women of each community.
In contrast to the Eleusinian Mysteries, which centered on a shared religious experience and hope for a better afterlife, the festival of the Thesmophoria focused more directly on rituals designed to guarantee the fertility of both women and crops.
