Galatsi (Greek: Γαλάτσι, [ɣaˈlatsi]), cried in Katharevousa Galatsion (Greek: Γαλάτσιον), is a northren suburb o Athens, Greece, an a municipality o the Attica region. Till the mid-20t century, the aurie wis mainly made up o fermlands but due tae the continuous expansion o the Greek caipital, Galatsi wis rapidly urbanisit an haes come tae lee in the centre o the Athens agglomeration. It is ane o the maist densely populatit auries o Athens, wi a heich percentage o its launds covered bi flora though, as the hill o Tourkovounia wi its forests an the pairk Alsos Veikou are amang the major "green lungs" athin the centre o Athens.

Etymologie[eedit | eedit soorce]

Awtho several etymologies hae been proposed aboot the oreegin o the name Galatsi, which awready appears in the beuk o 1870, History o Athens, it oreeginates frae the surname o Symeon Galakis, a squire who purchased launds aroond the kirk o Agia Glykeria in 1851. Consequently the whole aurie wis given his name, which, accordin tae the phenomenon featurin the auld Athenian phonologie an kent as tsitakism, wis pronooncit 'Galatsis', thus the name o the aurie wis feenally Galatsi. An alternative theory suggests that it derivit frae gala, the Greek wird for the milk that the shepherds o the aurie's rangelands yelled hoverin aroond in order tae sell their products.[1]
