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; Kathimerini is considered a newspaper of record for Greece.
Kathimerini is also affiliated with the weekly newspaper Athens Plus published by I Kathimerini S.A. and the International Herald Tribune.
Kathimerini was founded by Georgios Vlachos, a prominent antivenizelist, 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. The newspaper was highly critical of Eleftherios Venizelos in the early 20th century, and also opposed Georgios Papandreou in the postwar years.
It maintains a traditional layout, with its original griffin logo, and incorporates illustrated glossy inserts in its Sunday edition. Vlachou sold the company shortly before her death to George Koskotas and it passed 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.
Kathimerini's daily edition circulation figures are not available since the newspaper has prohibited press agencies from releasing such data. Its Sunday edition had a circulation of 95,007 in January 2014.
