Επιστoλή Κυπρίoυ Διαφυγόντoς τας Σφαγάς τoυ 1821 [Letter by a Cypriot Survivor of the 1821 Massacres]

This manuscript from the Foundation’s Cyprological collections is a rare testimony on the 1821 Cypriot revolt which followed the outburst of the Greek Revolution. In a letter to the British subconsulate in Larnaca, Antonios Vontitsianos, the Greek-Cypriot N.F. expresses his gratitude to the diplomat for having saved his life and asks him to look after his property. The text is complemented with well-documented annotations by Phoibos Stavrides.
