Nea Erythraia (Greek: Νέα Ερυθραία) is a suburb in the northeastern part of the Athens agglomeration, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Kifisia, of which it is a municipal unit.[2]

Geography[edit]

Nea Erythraia is situated at the western end of the forested Penteli mountain range. The municipal unit has an area of 4.831 km2.[3] The small river Kifisos forms the northwestern border of the municipal unit. Nea Erythraia is situated 14 km northeast of Athens city centre. The built-up area of Nea Erythraia is continuous with that of the neighbouring suburb Kifisia. Motorway 1, Greek National Road 1 and Greek National Road 83 pass through the town.

For many years, Nea Erythraia was home to the senior division of Campion, one of Greece's oldest English-language schools.

On September 14, 2004, the paralympic flame arrived in Nea Erythraia as it travelled from Marathon.
