Merge[edit]

Kaminia (Piraeus), Greece should be merged into the main article on the city. It doesn't seem to be notable on its own. Eluchil404 21:26, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

The page has been edited accordingly. I believe the page should now be merged into Piraeus with its own subcategory. Thank You.

Piraeus is noteable on its own because of its significance for classical and literary study, (particularly the long poem by H.D. titled "Toward the Piraeus)

It is also mentioned in Plato's Republic in the opening lines of Book I "I went down yesterday to the Piraeus with Glaucon the son of Ariston"

  • It appears the article, Kaminia, should be rewritten without the personalization of the remarks and included in this article on Piraeus with its own subheading, since it is an alleged neighborhood of Piraeus. See my remarks in Discussion under Kaminia... Stevenmitchell 12:02, 18 November 2006 (UTC)


I think that the article about Kaminia shouldn't be added unless the articles about Nikeai, keratsini etc are added as well. I mean Kaminia is a seperate perfectory, isn;t it? Thank you D.

I suggest the Kaminia Page be merged with this one, and we'll figure out what to do with it then. It's nothing but a neighbourhood of Pireas. El Greco 23:15, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

I agree with Kaminia being merged. It's not a city of its own, its a Piraeus neighborhood - kompikos 14:20, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

I've merged Kaminia into a new section called Neighbourhoods. I suppose it should be completed with more than Kaminia :) By the way, it's true that the Kaminia stuff seems much more an advertisement article than anything else. Can some people from Piraeus contrast the information appearing? Tranchis 14:00, 29 May 2007 (UTC)


LOL contrast what exactly here? The freshness of the Koutsothanasis bakery's breads? The popularity of the BASS JUNKIES by SIMONIDIS car audio team? The exclusivity in fathering "magges" (= ~dudes, fellas, tough-guys etc)? Well, tough job to decide about this merge... :-) NikoSilver 14:10, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
That's what I was suspecting... Guess why the merge was not ever done. Tranchis 14:17, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Well, this is indeed more of an advertisement than an encyclopedic entry. First of all, Kaminia is not beautiful. Second, most of Piraeus' people are Olympiacos fans and some neighbourhoods are actually closer to the stadium so that point is moot. Finally, I don't think the Gate 7 incident applies to Kaminia specifically and, if anything, it should be a separate article. My opinion: Completely remove the Kaminia section and use the Neighbourhoods section to list all neighbourhoods in Piraeus (or if anyone could draw a map of Peiraeus' neighbourhoods)

transliterations[edit]

I believe the transliterations for ancient/katharevousa and modern greek are messed up... can someone find out? Teentje 20:55, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Greater Piraeus[edit]

I think that the area (50.4 km2) and the population (466,065) of greater Piraeus should be added in the infobox.

Correction[edit]

The picture referred as "Athens metro station in Pireas" is incorrect. It actually shows the Athens urban railway station of Pireas —Preceding unsigned comment added by Njordin (talkcontribs) 13:50, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Piraeus[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Piraeus's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "population":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 04:46, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Ioannis Moralis is the new mayor of Piraeus . — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.73.143.19 (talk) 15:11, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
