Pagrati is a district of the eastern part of the Municipality of Athens that borders Kolonaki, Ilisia, Kaisariani, Byronas, Ymittos and Neos Kosmos.
The district was probably named by the god Hercules, because of the sanctuary that was found and excavated by Giannis Miliadis, or by the god Pagratis, whose worship may, according to one interpretation, coexist with the worship of Hercules. According to another version, the name was given to a monk Pagrati, who had lived in a temple in the area during the Turkish occupation.
