I Kathimerini (Greek: ? ?, pronounced [i ka?imeri'ni], meaning "The Daily") is a daily morning newspaper published in Athens. Its first edition was printed on September 15, 1919.

It is published in the Greek language, as well as in an abridged English-language edition.

The English edition is sold separately in the United States and as a supplement to the international edition of The New York Times (formerly the International Herald Tribune) in Greece and Cyprus, and is also available online.

In November 2008 a Kathimerini Cypriot weekend edition began to circulate.[1]

Kathimerini is also affiliated with the weekly newspaper Athens Plus published by I Kathimerini S.A. and the International Herald Tribune.[2]


Kathimerini was founded by Georgios Vlachos in 1919 and was later inherited by his daughter Helen Vlachos (Eléni Vláchou) and her husband, retired submarine commander Constantine Loundras. Considered a high-quality broadsheet, Kathimerini is traditionally perceived as one of the main[]conservative voices of Greek media.[3] The newspaper was highly critical of Eleftherios Venizelos in the early 20th century, and also opposed the Papandreou family in the postwar years. It maintains a traditional layout, with its original griffin logo, and incorporates illustrated glossy inserts in its Sunday edition. Vlachos sold the company shortly before her death in October 1995 to Aristeidis Alafouzos, a real estate developer and shipping magnate, who died in 2017; he was succeeded by his son Themistoklis Alafouzos.[]


There is no data on Kathimerinis daily edition circulation, since the newspaper has prohibited press agencies to release such data.[4] Its Sunday edition had a circulation of 95,007 in January 2014.[4]

According to third-party web analytics providers Alexa and SimilarWeb, Kathimerini's website is the 81th and 86th most visited in Greece respectively, as of August 2015.[5][6] SimilarWeb rates the site as the 23rd most visited news website in Greece, attracting over 3 million visitors per month.[6][7]
