Kapetan Mavios Milonoyiannis statue in Plateia 1866

06statuemilonoyiannis The statue of Kapetan Mavios Milonoyiannis (Καπεταν Μαβιος Μυλωνογιαννης) in Plateia 1866 is one that I have not been able to find out anything about. He is unusual in the square in having a title 'Kapetan' before his name, and the plinth says that he was a commander and military leader in Apokoronas.

Another statue on the square features Kostaros Voloudakis, also depicted as a leader from Apokoronas. Maybe they fought alongside each other, or maybe one followed the other, it is hard to tell.

The English are amazing. You don't see too many Americans that are in the position to pack up and move somewhere else in the world to live. Sounds like you bought a house and really settled in.
I guess the "adventurer, explorer" gene is built in with the Brits. Interesting site, I have bookmarked for future reading. I have never been to Greece but it is on my list of things to do before I leave this side of heaven.

you english... is better read in your free time.......you never learn.....
